The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leads the Federal government’s efforts to secure our Nation’s critical infrastructure by working with owners and operators to prepare for, prevent, mitigate, and respond to threats.

It is through partnerships where the Department continues to see new value and positive impact in mitigating and rapidly responding to crises.
