Planning the Future of DHS: Evolve from an All-Hazards Approach to a Targeted-Hazard Approach

By Leischen Stelter Today is the first day of the Maritime Risk Symposium at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles (Nov. 14 & 15). Patrick Forrest, the Director of Homeland Security Programs at American Military University and American Public University, is one of the featured speakers at this conference. As a former senior official at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Forrest’s presentation will focus on the need for the DHS to reevaluate its capacity to conduct long-term strategic planning and to evolve from an all-hazards approach to a targeted-hazard approach.
