The management of Homeland Security challenges has gotten substantially more challenging in the last several years. From counterterrorism, to cybersecurity, to pandemic response and the consideration of governance frameworks for Internet platforms, the White House and Department of Homeland Security are facing unprecedented challenges. The Honorable Jeh Johnson and the Honorable Lisa Monaco are two public servants with unmatched experience and expertise in managing an increasingly complex series of Twenty-First Century threats.

 

Featured Speakers:

 

  • Hon. Jeh Johnson, Former Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Hon. Lisa Monaco, Former Homeland Security Advisor to President Barack Obama and current Distinguished Senior Fellow at CLS
