"I was very pleased and honored by (the appointment). I think the work the (HSPI) is doing is very pivotal in trying to shape the discussion around the appropriate issues that arise (with terrorism), as well as the proactive measures that need to be taken to try and prevent as many terror attacks as we possibly can," he said.

According to a statement, the HSPI was founded in 2003 as a group “to build bridges between theory and practice to advance homeland security.” This year’s class will participate in roundtable discussions with government officials, as well as collaborate on policy papers that address the current security challenges.
