Contractors in Demand at Government Security Conference


The government-contracting industry looks to be well-represented at GOVSEC, the U.S. Law Enforcement Conference and Exposition.

USIS announced today Christy McCampbell, vice president for Global Anti Terrorism Assistance and Counternarcotics programs, will host a panel on gangs and terrorism at the conference.

“Chief McCampbell, who will serve as panel moderator, will help broaden the dialogue as she asks the participants to share what they have learned in terms of best practices,” said USIS President and CEO Bill Mixon. “Thanks to Christy’s previous service as the deputy assistant secretary for international narcotics in the U.S. Department of State, and significant background from her days as the chief of California’s Department of Justice, Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, this is a must-attend session at this conference and exposition.”

Also participating in the conference, Eric Handy, IT security and privacy adviser for SAIC, will conduct a CISSP exam prep clinic. David Morgan, cyber intrusion analyst with Booz Allen Hamilton, will speak on advanced persistent threats and current trends in cyber crime. Tom Patterson, executive director of Dell Inc.’s Federal Security Services group, will discuss cloud security and transition, and Mark Rasch, director of cybersecurity and privacy consulting for CSC, will conduct a security clearance workshop.

Tim Paydos, director for IBM’s Threat Prediction and Prevention unit, will give a keynote address.

The three-day conference in Washington, D.C., March 29-31, will offer a plethora of training and educational tools for government security actors and law enforcement personnel.
