DSI to hold Intelligence Exploitation Summit July 23 and 24

As computing and data mining technologies advance, intelligence agencies must develop new strategies to improve information sharing capabilities throughout the IC. The shift to the cloud has helped create an improved method of data sharing and enhanced way of securing sensitive information, however there are still challenges the IC must overcome. One challenge is the ability to share and process large volumes of data to ensure the right information is being shared to help prevent threats against national security.

Discussions at DSI’s 2019 Intelligence Exploitation Summit revolve around the technical challenges of the IC and the creation of interoperable and shared systems. Military intelligence organizations, senior members of the intelligence community and industry partners will convene in Washington, DC for this two-day summit emphasizing the critical need for the rapid acquisition and development of modern data management practices to better secure and share sensitive information.

To this end, the summit will feature senior level-speakers and sessions including:

  • “Evolving and Expanding IC ITE as it Advances into its Second Epoch” —John Sherman, Chief Information Officer, Intelligence Community, ODNI
  • “Shifting to Single Cloud Platform to Increase Analyst Insight and Capabilities” —Greg Smithberger, CIO, NSA
