Join policymakers and federal information professionals to discuss opportunities for the transformation of the management of classified information from creation to declassification. Panelists discuss how technology has already transformed how the government creates and shares classified information and how technology must be harnessed to facilitate its efficient declassification. An informed observer and user of the declassification system provides commentary, and there will be ample time for discussion with the audience.

William C. Carpenter: The Coming Transformation of Declassification
Nate Jones: Commentary on the Transformation of Declassification
Ellen Knight: Information Management Policy Development at the National Security Council
