Where are the Jobs – Homeland Security

Many of the activities and occupations that make-up the Homeland Security industry are not new, but until recently these sectors were decentralized and not considered part of one industry. The demands of the 21st century require more unified preparation and rapid, targeted responses.

Homeland Security encompasses a broad range of activities and occupations including:

  • Emergency preparedness and response,
  • Border and transportation security,
  • Infrastructure protection,
  • Information analysis, and
  • Homeland defense.

Many homeland security jobs and career opportunities are with federal, state, and local government agencies, but there are also plenty of additional opportunities with private companies and nonprofit organizations.
