Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Discusses Evolving Homeland Security Challenges at 59th Munich Security Conference
WASHINGTON – Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas and Under Secretary for Policy Robert Silvers participated in the Munich Security Conference (MSC) to discuss the importance of homeland security to the United States’ broader national security, including its role confronting state-based threats and building whole-of-society approaches to resilience.
On Friday, Secretary Mayorkas addressed senior intelligence officials at the conference, stressing the importance of bolstering information sharing between nations and within their own societies to better address the threats of 2023 and beyond. “We need to increase exponentially our investment in international and subnational partnership to prepare our nations for the threats we can predict and the ones we cannot,” said Secretary Mayorkas. “The more we all invest in our own homeland security, the safer we will all become.” You can read his full remarks at: https://www.dhs.gov/news/2023/
