U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano discusses the importance of bilateral and multilateral security efforts with CFR’s James M. Lindsay, detailing some of her department’s most recent international collaborations in Europe and the Middle East. "The things we know about don’t keep me up at night as much as the things that are the unknown," Napolitano said, identifying the most concerning security threats as "the safety of travels, the security of cargo moving around the world, the ability to spot potential terrorists early before they can be successful, the ability to respond to a terrorist attack, and then the whole area of the protection of cyberspace."
