Mr. Watchlist was out looking to update the event calendar, and he found this conference being held in August in Virginia. It’s being run by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), which is part of DHS (Department of Homeland Security), and it’s restricted to government employees and “approved members of the financial industry” (which means Mr. Watchlist can’t attend).
Here’s the description – almost worth changing jobs to go to this:
This conference will focus on intelligence briefings from the sponsoring agencies related to significant criminal and terrorist threats, current money laundering trends, successful investigations, regulatory issues, cyber threats, as well as lessons learned. The conference will additionally serve as an opportunity for law enforcement and industry partners to network and establish working relationships that will help secure our country and shutdown vulnerabilities within the financial and economic sectors.
The sponsoring agencies for this eleventh annual conference include Immigration and Customs Enforcement – Homeland Security Investigations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States Secret Service, and the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation.
