The Program Committee is responsible for ensuring the 2018 Nuclear Deterrence Summit program and sessions are top-notch. This year’s program will explore the theme The Administration’s New Nuclear Posture Review. The final document of the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) is set to be released just months before the Summit takes place, and will cover each leg of the nuclear triad. The review will detail the administration’s priorities for modernization and how this effort will relate to the nation’s policies on nonproliferation, arms control and keeping the nation safe from nuclear attack as well as continuing efforts by the Department of Homeland Security and Nuclear Detection Office to combat future nuclear smuggling and terrorism activities.

“We are fortunate to have assembled such an experienced program committee on the forefront of the issues, challenges and opportunities facing this sector,” said Nancy Berlin, Program Manager, Nuclear Deterrence Summit.

The Summit gives attendees access to executives representing some of the world’s most influential organizations and government agencies working in the nuclear deterrence and nonproliferation areas. Through a day and a half of conference sessions and networking events, attendees will get high-level strategic updates from high-profile and expert speakers who are moving the industry forward, and connect with one another to create business for 2018 and beyond.
