Over the last nine months, the Transportation Security Administration has implemented new security standards for flights to the U.S. and international airports with connections to the U.S. Working with allies and industry, David Pekoske, who became the seventh administrator of the TSA in August, is leading the global effort to raise standards for aviation security.

Pekoske joins RAND terrorism and security expert Brian Michael Jenkins for a discussion about the TSA's strategy and approach to operations in the face of evolving threats to transportation from terrorist groups and the individuals they inspire.
