Homeland Security

Man using facial recognition

September 2019

Advances in technology benefit us through convenience and speed. But clever adversaries can use these same advances to threaten people and institutions. For example:

  • How do you encourage innovation in artificial intelligence without falling prey to unintended—and possibly dangerous—consequences?
  • How do you make people safer with advanced facial recognition systems—without sacrificing civil liberties?
  • How do you stay ahead of possible security impacts as the government expands its use of mobile networks?
  • How do you get a system as far-reaching as the financial services sector to work in unison to thwart cyber attacks?

From financial systems to face recognition, MITRE conducts research and works with government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security to fortify our nation's safety and stability. Read more about our people and our work below.
