    For the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the larger homeland security enterprise, the coming years hold the potential for significant change. While broad shifts in the structure or mission of the homeland security enterprise are unlikely, there are a number of specific areas in which tangible advances can be made. These include cyber threat information sharing, enterprise screening and credentialing, border security intelligence and information sharing, and investment planning and execution. Yet in order for needed progress to occur on these issues, policymakers and planners must have a clear vision for the future and an understanding of desired strategic outcomes. To offer perspectives on the complex systems dynamics of the homeland security enterprise, CSIS is collaborating with MITRE, operator of the DHS’s Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HS SEDI) FFRDC, to characterize key crosscutting homeland security enterprise missions and frame transformational outcomes for the Department. You are invited to an on-the-record conference on October 30, 2012 in order to foster a dialogue regarding strategic visions for the homeland security enterprise in these areas and explore how these visions might be implemented.
