The Security Industry Association (SIA) has apprised that Dr. Reginald Brothers, DHS Undersecretary for Science and Technology, will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming SIA Government Summit in Washington, DC.

Dr. Reginald Brothers, the undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will make one of his first public speaking appearances since his confirmation at DHS, as a keynote speaker at 9:45 a.m. on June 3, 2014 during the SIA Government Summit at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The SIA Government Summit brings together the public and private sectors to discuss legislative and regulatory matters of importance to the security industry. The annual two-day conference, held June 3-4, 2014, also provides attendees with unique policy insights that help create new market opportunities.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Brothers as DHS undersecretary on April 7, 2014. As head of the DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate, Brothers is responsible for a science and technology portfolio that includes basic and applied research, development, demonstration, testing and evaluation with the purpose of helping DHS operational elements and the nation's first responders achieve their missions in the most effective, most efficient and safest manner possible.

"Our industry association has always had a strong working relationship with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security," said Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics and chairman of the SIA Government Summit Planning Committee. "We appreciate this openness to engagement with the security industry, and we welcome remarks from Undersecretary Brothers as we seek ways to improve our partnership with the department, and specifically the Science and Technology directorate.

"As we believe that our nation should utilize state-of-art physical security technologies to protect the American people, the opportunity to open a dialogue with the undersecretary is vitally important," Brent added. "Together, we can work to find ways to improve the interoperability, interconnectivity, durability and effectiveness of security technologies, and build a bridge to the future for a safe and secure nation."
