UPCOMING PROGRAMS

 

MS17E

 

The Fifth Annual Maritime Security 2017 East continues its commitment to providing all participants from the federal, state and local agencies, ports, critical infrastructure and private industry an outstanding opportunity to learn and collaborate across different perspectives, jurisdictions, and borders.  

New for 2017, the program will be based on three segments; Maritime Professional Responders/Officers, Ports/Maritime Facilities and Technology/Cyber Security.  These segments will be addressed as workshops that will run concurrently throughout the conference.  The four main general sessions of the conference will consist of two keynote sessions and two general sessions addressing topics that will apply to all maritime security stakeholders.  Breaking the segments into workshops and breakout sessions will allow us to provide more content and specialized discussions for all maritime security stakeholders.  In addition, this format will allow more interaction time for all attendees with our exhibitors.
