Today concluded a productive trip to New York City for the Secretary. She focused most of her trip on the issue of protecting our critical infrastructure, and emphasized a shared responsibility with the private sector in protecting our national assets in meetings with leaders from the real estate, professional sports, media, and financial industries.

The Secretary also delivered remarks at the America-Israel Friendship League’s ‘Partners for Democracy Award Dinner,’ toured a U.S. Secret Service-led Electronic Crimes Task Force facility, visited regional Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and USCIS offices, and received a security briefing at the New York Stock Exchange.

Oh, and she did The Colbert Report.
