Every year, the Border Security Expo offers local, state, and federal law enforcement officials from across the country (and around the globe) the education, solutions, and connections to make critical decisions needed to protect our borders from every kind of threat imaginable.

Join CGI at the Upcoming Border Security Expo

Each year’s Border Security Expo is focused on providing our nation’s law enforcement officials with the tools and information needed to better protect our borders from threats.

This year's conference—Identify and address new and emerging border challenges and opportunities through technology, partnership, and innovation—provides expert-led panels and keynotes, designed to offer insights, best practices, and actionable takeaways to proactively anticipate and mitigate threats. With knowledge presented by leaders in the field, attendees will bring proven solutions back to their organizations—leading to more efficient and effective security operations. 

Holly Canevari, Director, Consulting Services, along with Alex Lopez, Manager and Senior Solutions Integration Expert, will be in attendance to learn more/engage in discussion about CBP’s immediate, near term, and out-year capability requirements, goals, and vision for border operations, including: infrastructure updates; technology needs, requirements, and planning; initiatives; modernization; and deployments.
