Today I am pleased to announce our selection of the University of Texas at San Antonio as the Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAO) Standards Organization. The selection followed a competitive process to designate an organization to create standards to assist in the widespread establishment of ISAOs. ISAOs will serve as focal points for cybersecurity information sharing and collaboration within the private sector and between the private sector and government.

As part of our DHS Unity of Effort initiative, I have directed an important new measure to unify the Department’s research and development (R&D) activities. Specifically, I have directed the establishment of Integrated Product Teams (IPTs). These IPTs will be charged with coordinating and prioritizing research and development across the Department in a number of areas, such as aviation security, biological threats, counterterrorism, border security, cybersecurity and disaster resilience.

I commend the great work of our special agents from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), which is part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  HSI worked with law enforcement authorities in El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico to take down a human smuggling network suspected of illegally smuggling hundreds of individuals each week – including children and families – throughout Central America and Mexico into the United States.

HSI ha trabajado con las autoridades policiales en El Salvador, Guatemala y México para desmantelar una red de tráfico de personas responsable de contrabando ilegal de cientos de personas cada semana - incluyendo a los niños y familias - a través de América Central y México hacia los Estados Unidos.
