Tackling Emerging National Security Threats through Law Enforcement
National security threats to the United States continue to evolve. How is the Department of Justice adapting to this evolution in the threat picture? Even as countering terrorism and protecting the nation’s security remain the Department’s top priority, how is the Department addressing the new types of threats that are emerging? One of the Government’s tools to combat these threats is law enforcement, including both investigation and prosecution.
On May 22, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted John Carlin, Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the U.S. Department of Justice, for a discussion of how the Department is adapting and responding to the changing threat picture. Mr. Carlin addressed, in particular, the role of the National Security Division in tackling emergent threats such as those in cyber space.
