Welcome to the 8th Annual Maritime Security West

Thank you so much to everyone involved for a great program


The 8th Annual Maritime Security West is the thirtieth maritime security program hosted by Homeland Security Outlook since 2011. Maritime Security West furthers a commitment to address the needs of federal, state and local agencies, law enforcement, and military to counter the challenges of securing coastlines, inland waterways, ports and critical infrastructure.  With it’s proximity to the U.S./Canada border, the program will also address cross border collaboration and information sharing.


The program will be conducted in a series of panels and speaker sessions. This format will provide all participants the opportunity to learn and collaborate in an educational and interactive setting.
