We look forward to you joining us this summer in Annapolis, in the friendly confines where the program started in 2011 as a three-day seminar hosted by the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit profilers. Partnering with the Maryland state fusion center, the local InfraGard organization, and FBI offices in Baltimore and Washington, DC, the program has since welcomed nearly 5,000 attendees from over 500 agencies and companies across more than 30 states in three time zones and Canada.

More coming soon.
Like a miniseries, these topics are offered in 1.5 hour blocks, totaling 4.5 hours over three days

…with Special Guest Mark “Oz” Geist
“13 HOURS presents the true account of the events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.” The author, in this, his personal account, joins us as our Keynote presenter.
This year, On the INLETS will visit the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. Located among our national monuments to freedom on the National Mall, the Museum provides a powerful lesson in the fragility of freedom, the myth of progress, and the need for vigilance in preserving democratic values. Attendees will also spend time on the National Mall seeing the monuments where each year, millions of people visit to commemorate presidential legacies, to honor our nation’s veterans, to make their voices heard, and to celebrate our nation’s commitment to freedom and equality.
The Mid-Atlantic INLETS: a strong partnership
The Maryland Coordination & Analysis Center (MCAC): Less than one week after the horrific tragedy on September 11th 2001, U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft directed every U.S. Attorney’s Office to start an Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council (ATAC). Shortly thereafter, the Maryland ATAC formed the MCAC, one of the first State Level Fusion Centers in the United States to combine information sharing and analysis. Today, the MCAC coordinates the efforts of federal, state and local agencies to gather, analyze, and share intelligence information with law enforcement, public health, and emergency responder personnel.
InfraGard Maryland is a not for profit, 501(c)3 organization and serves as a valuable partnership between the FBI and the private sector. Dedicated to sharing information to prevent hostile acts, it is an association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies. Maryland chapter members serve key roles on the INLETS planning team.
The FBI field offices from Baltimore and Washington, DC enjoy strong relationships with the MCAC and both the InfraGard National Capital Region and InfraGard Maryland chapters. With special agents representing the local BAU and InfraGard programs collaborating with MCAC and InfraGard personnel as the INLETS Planning Team, together they holistically represent the federal, state, and private sector. As a result, INLETS has welcomed some of the best known Subject Matter Experts on the most relevant topics at the most affordable registration cost anywhere.
