Homeland Security

Catch Up Quick: The Dark Web, ISIS, Coast Guard in the Arctic, and More

The nonprofit, nonpartisan RAND Corporation has been a trusted, unbiased source for congressional staff on both sides of the aisle for decades. Our experts have testified and answered questions for staff on a variety of homeland security topics this year, including cybersecurity, terrorism, and countering violent extremism. Below are some recent examples of expertise you may find helpful.

Keep in mind that our researchers are also available to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions, would like to speak to a RAND researcher, or would like a copy of a RAND report.
