Homeland Security to Open Office in Silicon Valley
“The Department of Homeland Security is finalizing plans to open a ‘satellite office’ in Silicon Valley that will work with tech companies to improve cyber security and recruit people to work for the government, Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Tuesday.
‘We want to strengthen critical relationships in Silicon Valley and ensure that the government and the private sector benefit from each other’s research and development,’ Johnson said in a keynote speech to the RSA Conference, a major annual gathering in San Francisco of cyber security companies, hackers, journalists, and government officials. ‘And we want to convince some of the talented workforce here in Silicon Valley to come to Washington.'”
