The Homeland Security Departments Science and Technology Directorate is 
planning to play matchmaker early next year by bringing together systems 
integrators and government sponsors of information systems projects.

The directorate will hold a System Integrator Forum on Jan. 17, 2007 
[1]. A number of new cybersecurity solutions will be unveiled at the 
event, which will be held in Arlington, Va. The directorate funded the 
solutions to help reduce federal and commercial cybersecurity 
vulnerabilities.

A DHS announcement states that the goal of the free forum is to 
introduce high-quality, top-performing research companies to large 
integrators of technology that serve the federal government and private 
industry.

DHS said the presenting companies have been selected because of the 
maturity of their technology products, the products' relevance to 
government needs and their apparent commercial viability, and the 
companies business performance.

These technology solutions represent cutting-edge innovations with the 
potential to improve the security of the nations cyber infrastructure, 
while also reducing the costs required to protect cyber assets from 
attacks, the announcement states.

Technology solutions on display will include next-generation 
intrusion-detection and -prevention systems designed to stop zero-day, 
targeted and internal network attacks;

source code analysis solutions to eliminate errors in open-source 
applications; and secure memory monitoring products.

DHS said the forum will be especially relevant to systems integrators, 
chief technology officers, chief information officers, chief information 
systems security officers, purchasing officials and government sponsors 
of system integration programs.

The department said the event would not be useful to researchers or 
small businesses seeking funding or networking opportunities.
