Twenty-two years since the 9/11 attacks, the threat environment in the United States has greatly evolved, with concerns of domestic violent extremism added to post-9/11 threats from foreign actors. As the domestic threat environment has changed, so has the mission of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). 

On September 19, Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution hosted an event with Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, Kenneth Wainstein. Wainstein discussed the critical mission of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) at the Department of Homeland Security. He explained how I&A is evolving to meet the complexities of today’s threat environment while safeguarding Americans’ privacy, civil rights and civil liberties. He was then joined in discussion by Governance Studies Senior Fellow Benjamin Wittes. Audience Q&A followed the conversation.
