We invite you to join this webinar to gain a greater understanding of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) organisation including its influence and scope, as well as understand priorities, opportunities and best practices for engaging with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

The US Security market offers a tremendous opportunity for UK industry to engage by virtue of its size and scope. One of the most prominent US executive departments helping the US Government to realise its public safety priorities is the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Consisting of 22 government agencies each with their own budgets and priority thematic areas, the DHS represents the most diverse executive department and as such provides a robust set of opportunities for UK industry to consider.

The sheer size of the DHS presents a blessing and a curse for industry as they look to approach and do business in the US. This is why we are delighted to bring you this discussion hosted by Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Associate Director SES Matthew Wombacher. Focused on Operational Readiness and Continuity, Mr. Wombacher will help demystify the complex structure of the DHS as well as outline upcoming priorities for DHS CISA and best practices for engagement as a UK company.

Dubbed the “quarterback” of the US national cybersecurity team, CISA leads the effort to understand and manage cyber and physical risk to critical infrastructure. It is the nation’s risk advisor that works with partners to defend aginst today’s most pressing threats and collaborates to develop more secure and resilient infrastructure suited for the future.

By the end of this discussion, our goal is that you walk away with a greater understanding of the DHS organisation including its influence and scope, as well as understand priorities, opportunities and best practices for engaging CISA.
