On day-two (October 6th) of the 6th Annual International Crisis Management Conference, Dr. John A. Barrios, Sr Manager-Crisis Management at Amazon will present: GSOC and Intelligence: Looking Over the Horizon

During his presentation, John will examine the historical GSOC paradigm, how intelligence has evolved within the GSOC arena, and how the integration of the two functions can occur to foster organizational security synergy for your company. 

It is an honor to be invited to present at the ICMC 2021.  During my presentation, GSOC and Intelligence: Looking Over the Horizon, we will discuss the evolution of where the Global Security Operations Center (GSOC) has traditionally been situated, where intelligence can be integrated into the GSOC function, and how enhancing situational awareness in this space can move your organizational security function “ahead of the threat.”
