Attendees of this session can expect to gain insight into how the most recent COVID-19 relief legislation may impact safety and security technologies, as well as what to anticipate from the additional relief measures to be considered by the 117th Congress.

The SIA GovSummit is an annual government security policy and technology conference that examines emerging policy trends, technology needs of the government, and evolving security challenges.
