The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must rapidly identify and develop technologies to counter emerging threats.  The Cyber Security Division (CSD) conducts and supports research, development, testing, and evaluation to secure the Nation's current critical information infrastructure and to plan for a more secure infrastructure in the future. Protecting the Nation’s Financial Services Sector (FSS) Critical Infrastructure against cyber threats is a pressing priority.

DHS’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) launched the Innovation Other Transaction Solicitation (OTS) HSHQDC-16-R-B0005 in December last year.  The OTS Innovation framework ​​engages early stage ​start-ups through ​targeted ​non-dilutive ​funding ​and ​provides ​opportunities ​ for ​operational ​testing ​and ​market access. ​The SVIP hopes ​​to ​rapidly expand the ​commercial ​development ​roadmaps ​​to ​include ​homeland ​security ​ solutions by ​incentivizing ​product ​developers.

On November 14, the DHS S&T SVIP will ​bring ​together ​technology ​startups, ​investors, FSS ​leaders ​and ​ stakeholders ​to ​discuss ​unique ​opportunities in ​promoting ​the ​security ​of ​financial ​sector ​critical ​infrastructure. 

This  ​event ​will ​provide ​technology ​startups ​and ​investors ​with ​an ​ opportunity ​to ​learn ​more ​about ​DHS ​S&T ​CSD’s ​mission, ​the  ​technologies ​being ​used ​to ​complete ​their ​mission, ​and ​ technical ​areas ​where ​CSD ​and ​the ​FSS seek solutions. The common goal is leveraging creative ideas and solutions to enhance mission capability. By participating, you’ll have the chance to help shape the program direction and impact the Country’s financial stability.
