DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano visited several European countries recently to work on cooperative agreements. Along with her on the trip was Rand Beers, DHS Under-Secretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate. He said there is a "considerable way to go" in terms of developing data sharing agreements for counter terrorism purposes with the European Union. He said improving advanced airline passenger information exchange is important and such agreements with other EU countries could help in that regard.
