Strengthen U.S. Economic and National Security
Economic security is national security. America is safer when important technology and essential products are produced domestically. Today, our nation’s economic prosperity and security are challenged by competitors and adversaries that engage in illegal trade practices, steal intellectual property (IP), and engage in cybercrime. We operate on multiple fronts to protect Americans and the U.S. economy. We enforce compliance with trade laws, provide cybersecurity tools to thwart cybercrime, share accurate weather information, and are deploying a first-responder broadband network that will protect lives and property.
