As Immersive as Immersive Gets

The Fifth Annual Maritime Security 2017 East continues its commitment to providing all participants from the federal, state and local agencies, ports, critical infrastructure and private industry an outstanding opportunity to learn and collaborate across different perspectives, jurisdictions, and borders.  

New for 2017, the program will be based on four segments; Maritime Professional Responders/Officers, Ports/Maritime Facilities, Technology/Cyber Security and the general sessions that applies across all maritime security stakeholders.  These segments will be addressed as workshops that will run concurrently throughout the conference.
