The nation’s continued safety and security is dependent upon the continued maturation and institutionalization of a homeland security enterprise comprised of partners at all levels of government and the private sector. It is by strengthening this homeland security enterprise and adopting a whole community approach that we can, as a nation, prevent, prepare, respond to and recover more quickly from large-scale disasters.
Booz Allen is leading the way in shaping this next phase of homeland security. Through our new vision for homeland security and law enforcement, we’re bringing stakeholders together to build the kind of leadership, vision, and knowledge needed to make a strong, resilient homeland a reality.
As the nation reflects on the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, we face a continued challenge in keeping the homeland safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) along with law enforcement agencies across the Federal Government struggle to clearly link the mission needs with capabilities, demonstrate measurable outcomes, maximize resources, and eliminate redundancies. The mission of protecting the homeland only increases in scale and intensity as the threat to the homeland continues to evolve, trade flowing across our borders continues to increase, cybersecurity threats continue to grow, and natural disasters continue to impact us.
Given the on-going challenges, the Federal Government must refresh and refine its approach to homeland security and law enforcement. Specifically, Booz Allen has identified five key challenge areas that the Federal Government will face in the next ten years:
A New Vision for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement
In the next 10 years, we as a nation must adopt a strong, future-facing strategy to transform an aggregated homeland security and law enforcement enterprise and drive the focus toward achieving national resiliency, establishing a networked approach to countering terrorism , defending our cyberspace through collaboration, and managing a functional border in the global commons.
