Topic: Emerging Issues in Emergency Communications and Homeland Security

Details: We live in times with increasing threats in various forms.  Over the past years, our nation has experienced attacks from domestic and foreign governments as well as non-state entities.  These malicious acts have extended to the cyber world in the form of data breaches that have targeted retail businesses creating the potential to disrupt the digital economy.  Additional threats from extreme weather and natural events require the appropriate response and coordination. The federal government and state local officials have a role in coordinating the appropriate response and allocating the adequate resources.  Join us for a discussion featuring policy leaders from federal agencies on national security, emergency preparedness, and other public safety initiatives.

Speakers: Marsha MacBride, Associate Administrator – NTIA Office of Public Safety Communications; Joel Doolin, Deputy Chief Counsel – FEMA Office of Chief Counsel; Nicole McGinnis, Acting Deputy Chief – FCC Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau
