The CSIS Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Program, hosts the event:

The Evolution of Aviation Security since 9/11

Featuring Remarks by:

The Honorable John S. Pistole
Administrator, Transportation Security Administration
US Department of Homeland Security

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the United States has worked diligently to ensure the security of the commercial aviation system. To this end, on November 19, 2001 Congress created the Transportation Security Administration, assigning the new organization responsibility for providing security at the nation’s airports. As the decade has progressed, the aviation system has remained a favored target of terrorists, who have repeatedly revised their methods in an attempt to foil existing security architecture.  Given the continuing threat from terrorists who are both adaptable and determined, the coming years will necessitate the constant evolution of the TSA and the security measures it employs. Please join CSIS for remarks by the Honorable John Pistole on advancements in aviation security and efforts by the TSA to counter future threats.
