In the face of natural disasters such as Superstorm Sandy and man-made disasters like the Boston Marathon attacks, some have argued that there is a growing need to shift towards a posture that emphasizes resilience across all elements of the homeland security enterprise. A career Coast Guard officer and former White House National Security Council staffer, Dr. Dane Egli makes the case in "Beyond the Storms" that the nation needs to expand its focus beyond prevention and protection to a more systemic analysis of mitigation, response, and recovery. Please join the CSIS Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Program on the evening of Wednesday, January 8 for an on-the-record conversation with Dr. Egli regarding his new book and the value of resilience.
