The symposium on homeland security hosted by the Coles College of Business showcases quality research by both industry and academic experts on homeland security issues is scheduled for October 27, 2022. The topics include but are not limited to natural disaster planning, counterterrorism, cybersecurity and related domestic policy and global challenges.
