Industry Briefing

The IJIS Institute's Industry Briefing is a must attend technology briefing and training conference focused on information sharing and its associated standards.

Since 9/11 the United States has strived to improve information sharing amongst agencies at all levels of government. Despite all of the progress that has been made, much is left to be done. Join industry and government information technology (IT) leaders and experts to hear about the information sharing practices, technology, standards that will move information sharing along the road to greater adoption. Hear about real life information sharing stories and how your agency and company can be part of this success.

Join us January 23*-25, 2013, for the Winter Industry Briefing at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia to collaboratively explore various perspectives on the challenges of and future for information sharing and standards in this difficult budget constrained environment.

Media and Press Attendance at the IJIS Institute Industry Briefing: The objective of the IJIS Institute Industry Briefing is to provide a collaborative forum where government and industry executives may engage in a frank and candid exchange on issues of topical importance to the justice, public safety and homeland security IT community. Reporters and attendees are asked to not attribute any statement to any individual speaker or participants in any recordings, documentation or social media for dissemination beyond the session without obtaining the associated speaker's permission. If the participant does not consent, we ask all reporters and attendees to honor a "non-attribution" policy to preserve the Briefing as a completely open forum for meaningful exchange between government and industry.
