Domestic Security Revisited: Progress on Confronting a Dynamic Threat Landscape    

In January 2015, Business Executives for National Security (BENS) released a report entitled Domestic Security: Confronting a Changing Threat to Ensure Public Safety and Civil Liberties. Since publishing Domestic Security, BENS has sought to facilitate discussion around the issues articulated in the report and to build support for strengthening the coordination and management of U.S. intelligence and law enforcement functions in the face of evolving threats. Our members have since pursued these objectives through direct engagement with principals in Congress, the executive branch, and state and local governments, all of whom are making encouraging progress toward a more integrated and collaborative domestic security enterprise. This follow-up report is intended both to highlight this progress and identify those areas where more must be done.
