Mollie Halpern: The FBI and its partners mark the one-year anniversary of the establishment of the Export Enforcement Coordination Center, or E2C2.

Vincent B. Lisi: We’re a big proponent of it.

Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern, and this is FBI, This Week. The E2C2 is a multi-agency center which coordinates and enhances export control enforcement efforts. It is a whole-of-government approach to ensure that items do not end up in the hands of those who intend to do the United States harm. Vincent Lisi, the deputy assistant director in the Counterintelligence Division, says the E2C2 makes sure the good guys are all on the same page…

Lisi: Using the E2C2, we can be more streamlined and identify the targets that we’re going after jointly as opposed to going after them separately.

Halpern: The E2C2 includes nine U.S. governmental departments and 17 federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security and Commerce.

Lisi: It’s bringing everybody together and saying, “Hey, instead of each of you racing toward the finish line, let’s get together and work on this as one.”

Halpern: For more information, visit www.fbi.gov.
