Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, highlighted the agency’s management reform activities and public safety operations in his remarks Thursday at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.

He said Thursday that DHS works to transform budgeting, acquisition and programming functions under its Unity of Effort initiative to shift away from a stove-pipe organizational system.

During his speech, Johnson also described how DHS and its component agencies such as the Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard have helped protect infrastructure and people across the country.

He added that cybersecurity and counterterrorism will remain the cornerstones of the DHS mission.

“My overarching goal as Secretary this last year is to continue to protect the homeland and leave the Department of Homeland Security a better place than I found it,” Johnson told his audience.
