2013 AFCEA International Homeland Security Conference
Wednesday - 2/27/2013, 6:17pm EST
CIO and Assistant Director
Federal Law Enforcement Training Center
The Homeland Security and Defense departments are using simulators and modeling for operational training. It sounds futuristic but it may also be cheaper than the old textbook approach. Sandy Peavy is CIO and assistant director at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
Cybersecurity is at the top of many federal agendas these days, from the new executive order to the renewed push for cyber legislation, and the Mandiant report about China's role in cyber espionage. But there's one thing that's higher on the priority list â€" the budget. Federal News Radio spoke about these issues with the Honorable Paul Schneider, a principal at the Chertoff Group and a former deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, where he focused on cybersecurity and financial management.
Vice President, Homeland Security Programs
With federal agencies like the General Services Administration cancelling conferences, events hosted by outside groups remain one of the few ways large groups of like-minded feds can mingle. AFCEA International's Homeland Security Conference is going on in downtown Washington, DC through Thursday. Topics range from emergency management to cybersecurity and the must-have tools for law enforcement. Federal News Radio spoke with Vince Patton, vice president of homeland security programs at AFCEA International, about the event.
