The US homeland security budget for fiscal 2014 will be $376 million lower than fiscal year 2013, despite concessions for more financing to “high-priority” cyber security defense and border security initiatives.
The Panel, moderated by Williams Mullen Partner Anthony Anikeeff, will discuss whether the current budget allocated to homeland security is sufficient to meet the US’ needs, and how the federal government defines and assesses which threats should be prioritized.
