KEY PLAYERS

Profiles
By Nancy Ferris and Matthew Weinstock
Over the past 18 months, government agencies have been created and eliminated, expanded and streamlined, all in the name of improving security here at home.

This list is by no means comprehensive; however, it does provide a sense of the tremendous breadth of experience people across government are bringing to the enormously complex task of improving domestic security.
