GovSec Conference Recap Blog Day 2

As part of Technology Week in Washington DC, GovWin attended GovSec, the government security expo and conference, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. After giving my presentation: "Trends for First Responders: Cutting Edge Implementation Strategies and Case Studies", I was able to spend time on Day 2 of the conference focused on meeting with GovWin members and attending presentations by other organizations.

Two of the most interesting presentations that I attended where held by the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) and Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms(ATF). The ATF session titled "Law Enforcement Agent Mobility" provided a look at how the organization has leveraged technology to extend the capabilities of its highly mobile workforce. Mark Williams explained how the ATF has successfully utilized mobile command posts to provide field agents with the same technologies at a remote crime scene as they would have in their office.

In the Afternoon the Department of Homeland Security presented a briefing session titled "Department of Homeland Security Tools and Resources for Information Sharing". This briefing session focused on the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) and the Law Enforcement Information Sharing System (LEISS). This session provided an insight into how DHS continues to experience difficulties walking the line between facilitating a quick exchange of information between the Federal and State and Local Level, and ensuring that the information is only available to authorized personnel.

GovSec is just one of the many conferences that the GovWin Justice & Public Safety Team will be attending this year. Next up it the 34th annual IACP Law Enforcement Information Management (LIEM) conference in Atlanta from May 24-27th.
