Borderpol’s purpose is to support border agencies worldwide to develop fast, safe and secure borders. Perhaps the greatest threat our agency leaders have to better borders is terrorist travel. ISIS is desperate to move foreign nationals into its fold and presenting new and ever-evolving tactics that border agencies and the supporting tech sector need to harness to help curtail the travel. We have world support from the public and private sector for the most cutting edge, helpful and on-point international meeting on the subject.
