Examinethe Role of within the Homeland Security Enterprise

Homelandsecurity has got five missions in its quest of maintain nationalsecurity namely:

Preventingterrorism and enhancing security Securing and managing our bordersEnforcing and administering immigration laws Safeguarding andsecuring cyberspace and Ensuring resilience to disasters1

Theprinciples set and objectives set per item are well illustrated andwill assist in implementing risk management for the citizens againstany security threats. Homeland security classifies its mission andgoals through three categories namely security, resilience andcustoms and exchange.

Security:

Accordingto U.S. Department of Homeland Security, homelandsecurity tries to protect the United States and its people, vitalinterests, and way of life2and relies on ways to prevent and deter attacks by identifying andinterdicting threats, denying hostile actors the ability to operatewithin our borders, and protecting the Nation’s criticalinfrastructure and key resources.3

Protectionand security of the people is an important step since in the ‘globalsystems’, ‘people, goods, and data around the globe’ are movedand this ‘facilitate the movement of dangerous people, goods, anddata within these’ global systems, through points of origin andtransfer, or border crossings. 4

Therefore,to avert any threat or risk to our homeland security,according to U.S. Department of Homeland,engagement of international allies and employing the full breadthnational capacity from the Federal Government, to State, local,tribal, and territorial police, other law enforcement entities, theIntelligence Community, and the private sector should be widelyinvolved.5

Resilience:

Thisis the ability to adapt to change and in this context to adapt torisks or hazards associated with emerging daily threats.The worldhas got numerous supply chains where essential elements of economicprosperity—people, goods and resources, money, and information—allflow6and poses vulnerability to the citizens.

Theconsequences of events are no longer confined to a single point adisruption in one place can ripple through the system and haveimmediate, catastrophic, and multiplying consequences across thecountry and around the world. Despite our best efforts, some attacks,accidents, and disasters will occur. 7

Inthis regard the most important thing is to develop a society which is‘robust, adaptable, and has the capacity for rapid recovery’8hencethe affected individuals whether government, private sector orfamilies should build the capacity to withstand disruption, absorbor tolerate disturbance, know their role in a crisis, adapt tochanging conditions, and grow stronger over time. 9

FromU.S.Department of Homeland, there is still a challenge on how to dealwith securityissues and how to best meet the challenges of helping our citizensprepare psychologically and materially for attacks and disasters thatdo occur. There is increasing cases of security threats and emergenceof new technology calls for the renewed efforts to look at our waysof having resilience.

Customsand Exchange:

Accordingto U.S. Department of Homeland, what should be immediatelyameliorated is enforcement of legal trade,travel, and immigration10by homeland security. The partners and stakeholders of the homelandsecurity enterprise are responsible for facilitating and expeditingthe lawful movement of people and goods into and out of the UnitedStates. Strengthening our economy and promoting lawful trade, travel,and immigration must include security and resilience, just assecurity and resilience must include promoting a strong andcompetitive U.S. economy, welcoming lawful immigrants, and protectingcivil liberties and the rule of law11.Homeland security aid in dealing with security issues throughcustoms and exchange chains by reinforcing actions such as screening,authenticating, and maintaining awareness of the flow of people,goods, and information around the world and across US borders.12
