THE
CHANGING STATE
OF TODAY’S BORDERS

Today’s borders face entirely new challenges. Due to the unprecedented number of people traveling and goods being shipped, agencies find themselves under increased pressure not only to monitor borders physically, but also to process staggering amounts of information every day. Now more than ever, governments need solutions that can help them create smarter borders.

CREATING AN
INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM


The accelerating pace of change demands a radical new approach. Industry and government must seize the opportunity to work together in new ways, creating an interconnected ecosystem of innovation based on trust and partnership.

Leading agencies are committed to understanding new technologies and educating their workforce to get the most out of them. They’re also bringing the right experts on board to push the boundaries of innovations such as biometrics, predictive modeling and the Internet of Things.
