Visit By Secretary Mayorkas

It was a pleasure to welcome Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, to our Embassy.

We followed the rest of his visit with interest. Secretary Mayorkas participated in productive conversations on cybersecurity with partners to strengthen the relationship between the U.S. and Portugal, as well as with the European Union in the areas of security and justice.

One of these discussions was conducted by the Portuguese Gabinete Nacional de Segurança and Centro Nacional de Cibersegurança, bringing together Portuguese cyber authorities, companies and specialists from the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice; an opportunity to underline that the United States of America and Portugal are sharing efforts to protect critical infrastructures from cyber attacks.

In this two-day visit, Secretary Mayorkas reinforced our commitment to continue working together to keep our nations safe.
