Why You Should Attend This Year's Summit:

The 2023 Intelligence Exploitation Summit will convene senior level experts and decision-makers from across the Intelligence Community, Military, U.S. Government, and Industry for discussions on efforts to accelerate collaboration and innovation to enhance the analysis and exploitation of intelligence data to support critical DoD and IC priorities.

The Summit will explore initiatives to modernize IC IT systems, deliver cloud-based solutions, enhance cybersecurity, implementation of AI & ML, enable interconnected, secure intelligence sharing, strengthen collaboration among IC partners, and sustain mission-critical enterprise services. The event will also feature a panel that will discuss the acceleration of multi-cloud migration across the IC to modernize and enhance intelligence exploitation.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit’s content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the human and technical analysis from intelligence leaders to key policy-makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:

- DSI’s Summit directly supports the IC, DoD, and federal priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department's mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

- DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.

- The Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees and is considered an educational training forum and a widely attended gathering.

(Industry and academia members are charged a fee for admission.)
