Highlighting the Department's Progress in 2011

Secretary Napolitano highlighted the Department's progress in 2011, emphasizing the major steps the Department has taken this year to enhance America's capabilities to guard against terrorism; secure the nation's borders; engage in smart enforcement of our immigration laws; safeguard and secure cyberspace; prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters; and to mature and strengthen the homeland security enterprise.

"This year, as we observed the 10th anniversary of the attacks that gave rise to our department, we continued to strengthen the safety, security, and resilience of our nation," said Secretary Napolitano. "As we move into 2012, we will continue to work together with our federal, state, local, and private sector partners to address new and emerging challenges while maturing and strengthening the homeland security enterprise."
