7th Big Data for Intelligence Symposium

Defense Strategies Institute’s 7th Annual Big Data for Intelligence Symposium will provide members of the Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense a forum to have an open discussion about the challenges and opportunities of turning vast amounts of raw data into actionable intelligence. This Symposium will provide the Intelligence Community, US military commands, government agencies, members of academia, and technology industry leaders the opportunity to explore ways to improve the way we utilize big data for intelligence.

The 2019 Symposium will address the technologies, policies, and frameworks currently in place to turn our big data into intelligence, as well as the steps we must take in the future to improve this process and maintain our operational advantage.
