The range of topics discussed in this workshop includes international and domestic terrorism, cyber security, protection of intellectual property/proprietary information, dual-use research, workplace violence, security challenges with the rapid advances in research and technology innovations, and insider-threat mitigation. Relationships between the scientific and security communities must be built on trust and understanding in order to develop effective, sensible mitigation strategies, communication pathways, and policies to meet these challenges.


Workshop Goal: Improve cooperation among law enforcement agencies and research institutions to mitigate potential biosecurity issues that may affect public health and safety.

- Identify biosecurity roles and responsibilities of law enforcement agencies

- Identify biosecurity roles and responsibilities of research institutions

- Identify benefits and potential obstacles to improve cooperation among law

enforcement agencies and research institutions regarding biosecurity

Impact: Biosecurity stakeholders will use a multi-sector approach to develop and institute mechanisms to mitigate internal and external risks and threats. Those mechanisms will be based on effective use of resources and shared responsibilities and the mechanisms will be effective to mitigate real not perceived risks balancing.
