Attend unique Railroad Freight Security Event!

In the post-9/11 era, aviation and maritime security issues have received significant
attention. Unfortunately, other transportation sub-sectors,
particularly railroad freight security, have not garnered adequate
interest. This conference seeks to rectify this oversight by addressing
various technology and security solutions to traditional criminal and
terrorist threats facing railroad freight transportation. In doing so,
we will provide insightful and practical remedies to risks arising in
this transportation sub-sector.

This conference will appeal to professionals in the following fields:
Transportation, Supply Chain, Security, Technology, Government,
Business, and Media.

Sponsors: Illinois Homeland Security Network (Homeland Security
Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center, Northwestern University;
Homeland Security Market Development, Illinois Department of Commerce
and Economic Opportunity; Homeland Security Procurement Technical

Program, Western Illinois University); Underwriters Laboratories Inc.;
