Public Policy Update for Drone Security

Public Policy Update for Drone Security

November 20, 2019, 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM

Theater 1

Given the uptick of increasingly sophisticated threats, the security industry continues to explore alternative methods to protect critical assets and mitigate potential threats. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also known as “drones,” enable security practitioners to augment traditional security capabilities by enhancing situational awareness, threat mitigation, and threat response, to name a few. However, there are sundry legal and regulatory obstacles in place that potentially prevent practitioners from leveraging UAS benefits; even for “counter drones.” This session will analyze the federal public policy landscape by reviewing current and ongoing policies impacting drone use in security applications.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Learn and understand the current policy and regulatory framework and review ongoing legislative efforts.
2. Learn how you can get involved to shape policy development to enable drone use in security applications.
