You have been asked by several of your employees to explain homeland security (HLS) strategy. Draft a memo that will address the following queries:
- What is HLS strategy?
- How is HLS strategy related to critical mission areas?
- How are critical mission areas related to the 9/11 attacks?
To provide your colleagues with a practical illustration of how HLS operates, pick a major technology initiative undertaken by the Department of Homeland Security since its inception in 2003, and create a presentation for your colleagues. In it, cover the following:
- Explain the initiative’s background and the purpose of HLS for undertaking the initiative.
- Describe the current status of the program, and assess its effectiveness in relation to its objective.
Support your arguments with authoritative sources, and apply appropriate APA formatting guidelines.
