Homeland Security Directorate
The Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism (S/CT), on behalf of the Secretary of State, maintains a unique relationship and works closely to support, the efforts of the Department of Homeland Security and the White House Homeland Security Council. Our goal is to enhance an integrated approach to homeland security and international counterterrorism efforts.
S/CT participates in numerous interagency Working Groups and Homeland Security Council Policy Coordinating Committees, and coordinates with other Department of State bureaus to achieve a broad-based counterterrorism strategy furthering domestic and foreign policy objectives. S/CT also chairs the Department of State's Homeland Security Coordinating Committee (HSCC), which brings together bureaus and offices within the Department with homeland security responsibilities to exchange information, review issues, and to frame or decide major policy issues related to homeland security.
Susan F. Burk is the Deputy Coordinator, Homeland Security Directorate at the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism.
