The Private Sector Office hosted the tenth DHS for a Day on August 1st, in Boston, Massachusetts. This ongoing initiative is one example of DHS’ commitment to collaborating with the private sector to share best practices and build valuable partnerships to keep our communities and businesses safer.
DHS for a Day
Earlier this month, the Private Sector Office (PSO) coordinated DHS for a Day VIII, which brought together representatives from the business, academic, and non-profit communities to visit three DHS emergency operations centers.
As we approach the end of the year, I’d like to highlight some of the significant steps we have taken in 2011 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 mature and strengthen the homeland security enterprise.
At the Department of Homeland Security, we are committed to ensuring that veterans play a vital role in the Department’s mission to protect our nation.
Earlier this month, DHS hosted the fifth DHS for a Day in Detroit, Michigan as part of our ongoing series of day-long events to brief private sector partners about DHS.
Homeland security is a responsibility shared across a broad range of partners, including the private sector. In support of our continued efforts to strengthen our security in collaboration with America’s businesses, schools and industries, DHS recently hosted the fourth DHS for a Day event in Seattle on July 19th.
