Statement of Robin Kane and Paul Benda, Before the United States House of Representatives, Transportation Security Subcommittee, Homeland Security Committee, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, November 3, 2011   [open pdf - 263KB]

"Good afternoon, Chairman Rogers, Ranking Member Jackson-Lee, and distinguished members of the Subcommittee. Thank you for the opportunity to testify today about the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) use of technology that supports our layered approach to securing the nation's transportation systems while ensuring freedom of movement for people and commerce. To accomplish this mission, we employ risk-based, intelligence-driven operations to prevent terrorist attacks and reduce the vulnerability of the Nation's transportation system. While no layer on its own addresses all risk, in combination they create a strong and formidable system. Last fall, TSA Administrator John S. Pistole directed the agency to explore ways to develop a strategy for achieving risk-based security. I am pleased to have an opportunity today to discuss with the Subcommittee the processes employed by TSA to advance innovation through new technologies that strengthen our multi-layered security system."
