DHS and its partners have a responsibility to look to the future in order to foresee technological advancements that might result in new threats and vulnerabilities. The Department must also put in place the right programs, policies, and procedures to mitigate potential dangers. This subcommittee will do so by: providing an assessment of current state and perceived future advancements in emerging technologies that could pose a threat to the homeland security of the U.S.; analyzing and providing insight into the way such technologies could endanger the homeland, with a focus on those that have the highest likelihood of becoming a threat; lastly, they will provide recommendations that will best mitigate perceived impacts of a threat, and provide an assessment on the opportunities for DHS components to maximize the use of new technological advancements to defend against emerging threats.
