“Former Homeland Security Department Secretary Tom Ridge told a roomful of lawyers on Friday that the terrorist threat to the United States is “real and multi-generational,” but it also is “something we can deal with” through advances in intelligence-gathering and technology.

“People plus technology is what will get us where we need to be to be able to protect ourselves,” he said during an American Bar Association conference keynote. Ridge left his Cabinet-level post for the private sector in 2005 and now has his own consulting firm.” (GovExec)
