The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks with the mission to protect the nation’s transportation systems. It faced many challenges, including new technology and workforce.

  • John Pistole, former TSA administrator, former FBI deputy director and now president of Anderson University, said TSA moved away from a one-size-fits-all approach towards risk-based, intelligence-driven security during his tenure from 2010 to 2014, which allowed for more proactive threat management.
  • TSA PreCheck stemmed from this new approach, Pistole explained.
  • Pistole was at the FBI during 9/11 (before he was deputy director) and said the FBI changed from a reactive agency to a proactive organization focused on counterterrorism and national security.
  • Pistole said he thinks current FBI Director Christopher Wray is doing a great job and stressed the importance of remaining independent and nonpartisan.
