***  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.
