Special Agent Tafe will provide an overview and update on the Administration's effort to fundamentally reform the current U.S. export control system in order to enhance U.S. national security and the competitiveness of key U.S. manufacturing and technology sectors.  He will also discuss Homeland Security Investigations' role in enforcing U.S. export laws and provide an overview of a criminal case involving the illegal transfer of export controlled technology to the People's Republic of China.



Irvin VarkonyiFollowing Mr. Tafe is Irvin Varkonyi, President of Supply Chain Operations Preparedness Education (SCOPE), who will give a demonstration of the Risk Assessment Heat Map. We'll explore the interaction between government and private sectors to protect global supply chains while we simultaneously optimize supply chain performance. The Risk Assessment Heat Map will be an interactive exercise assessing strengths and weakness in supply chains, focusing on the probability of threats and vulnerabilities.
