Buy Tickets

Janet Napolitano, Former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, will discuss how the department has succeeded and failed since its inception after 9/11, and whether it can still keep America safe as security risks rapidly evolve. Napolitano, currently the President of University of California, will discuss why the department is still struggling to address cybersecurity threats and concerns, and how it might overcome those challenges. She will address the humanitarian and security crisis at the border, as crossings of families and children have tripled since this time last year and border resources have become overwhelmed. She will also discuss the effectiveness of terrorism prevention since 9/11 and the rise of citizens who are radicalized in the US as terrorist groups find new ways to recruit online.
