At the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), we fight against the world’s toughest cyber adversaries. They attack at the speed of light, rapidly changing their tactics -- and targets -- to exploit new vulnerabilities and new technology. We are constantly challenged to keep up with these adversaries and defend the safety and security of the American people – the highest stakes.

This past holiday weekend, as increased numbers of Americans traveled by domestic commercial air, the men and women of TSA worked hard to keep passengers moving through security checkpoints, and keep them safe. Particularly in the current global threat environment, we are not compromising or short-cutting aviation security, while meeting increased travel volume.
This week, we announced Exemplar, a pilot program for Department employees to get specialized, on-the-job training in the private sector. Through this new program, GS-11 through GS-15 employees in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) and the Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) will be detailed to for-profit private sector entities for hands-on experience in their fields.
Today I thank Congress for approving our $28 million reprogramming request for TSA, which will allow us to more effectively and efficiently screen the increased number of travelers at U.S. airports. I would especially like to thank Chairman John Hoeven, Ranking Member Jeanne Shaheen, Chairman John Carter, and Ranking Member Lucille Roybal-Allard for their efforts to ensure the approval of this request.
