Homeland Security

Highlighting our Progress

The Department of Homeland Security and its many partners across the federal government, public and private sectors, and communities across the country and around the world have worked to build a new homeland security enterprise to better mitigate and defend against dynamic threats, minimize risks, and maximize the ability to respond and recover from attacks and disasters of all kinds.

Together, these efforts have provided a strong foundation to protect communities from terrorism and other threats, while safeguarding the fundamental rights of all Americans.
