About this Workshop:
This unique workshop will help you explore the emerging intelligence requirements, organizational and operations to conduct
Homeland Security intelligence activities, surveying the legal and information requirements demanded by Congress, and the operational implementation across intelligence and law enforcement. Focusing on practical implementation, the Homeland Security intelligence Workshop provides a strong introduction to the methodologies of collection, processing and analysis. It also shows you how these requirements can be practically achieved at the federal, state and local levels in terms of operations (e.g. information sharing mechanisms and intelligence fusion centers) and Technology implementations. You will examine the processes of information sharing, intelligence and warning, cross-organization collaboration, and intelligence dissemination. The operational (people and processes), systems (networked infrastructure) and technical (standards, and technologies) perspectives of the Homeland Security intelligence architecture are described. You will also discuss future directions in the emerging threat and in the development of technologies to support Homeland Security.

Course Overview:
• What policy and
Technology challenges are posed by the needs for Homeland Security intelligence? What are the alternative positions on these issues?
• How do
Homeland Security intelligence requirements drive the implementation of planning, direction, collection, processing-analysis, and reporting? What new approaches are available for collection, processing, collaboration, analysis and dissemination?
• How do
Homeland Security intelligence needs affect current and future plans and initiatives in Federal, state and local intelligence and law enforcement organizations and systems?

In addition to the course materials, you will receive a CD containing the complete course notes and a digital reference library of over 40 key reference documents on intelligence for homeland security, organized by the outline of the workshop.
