This issue of DEFCON 1 comes to you from San Diego.

 

“Defense is the stronger form with the negative object, and attack the weaker form with the positive object.”

– Ernest Hemingway

 

Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry.

 

DEFCON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

 

Help the network grow.  Sign up a friend.  They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

 

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share.  This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

 

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address?  Don’t forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription.  To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.  I cannot do this for you.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

***  SNA Maritime Security Forum

 

The Surface Navy Association and the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association

 

Maritime Security Forum – March 14 2012

United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut

 

The Surface Navy Association along with the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association are sponsoring our second Maritime Security Forum, entitled “Maritime Security: Guarding Our Country and Our Way of Life” to be held March 14, 2012 at the United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut.

 

This event will bring Navy, Coast Guard, Industry, Inter-agency and International stakeholders together to discuss the Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Sea power and how it applies to maritime security.

 

At this event we will examine the threats to America and its allies, both large and small. We will look into how disruptions to maritime commerce have global implications and how homeland defense begins far from our shores, and involves a broad spectrum of participants, each with vital capability and capacity.  We will see how armed services and civilian agencies cooperate to share information and act upon that information and how industry contributes to global maritime domain awareness.  We will show how technology, operations, policy, and information sharing must be coordinated to achieve maritime security.

 

We are presenting leaders who can address operations, policy, technology, and above all the importance of partnerships to achieve maritime security.  No individual service or organization can solely ensure maritime security.

 

Details and registration for this thought provoking event can be found at http://www.navysna.org/CGForum/Index.htm

***  Maritime Homeland Security Summit 2012

30 April, 2012 – 2 May, 2012

Norfolk, VA, United States

 

The conclusion of active operations in the Middle East calls into question the ongoing threat from radical extremism and the other threats faced by the United States. Due to the heightened intensity of threats the Coast Guard has taken steps to secure safety and has allocated

$10.34 billion for FY2012 towards modernization and increasing maritime security capabilities. It’s an important time for the maritime community to accurately assess its priorities and plan for both existing and emerging challenges.

 

The 10th Annual Maritime Homeland Security Summit will bring together all relevant stakeholders to discuss the most pressing issues facing the maritime community, from efforts to build new partnerships to modernizing security capabilities. Departmental policy makers, uniformed service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather in Norfolk to network, share best practices and explore potential paths to fortifying the United States’ maritime security.
