About the Conference

The Defense Counterintelligence Security Agency (DCSA) is increasing its scrutiny and compliance expectations in the wake of significant new and anticipated developments.

  • Mitigating Risks Posed by Foreign and Dual Citizenship of Employees and Others: What Has (and Hasn’t) Yielded DCSA Approval and The Newest Best Practices for Moving Forward;
  • Using Proxy and Voting Trust Agreements Instead of SCAs and SSAs: The Newest, Lessor Known Considerations, Timelines and Processes; and
