Our Work

We convene leading experts and practitioners for executive-level events, publish policy-relevant analysis, and provide expert testimony to Congress on critical issues and challenges related to cybersecurity, critical infrastructure, counterterrorism, and homeland security. Our experts also engage with media and are featured regularly in the news.


Our cyber-related work encompasses many subjects including the threat spectrum (actors and vectors); response measures (US strategy, policy, and legislation); partnerships (across sectors and borders); and emerging issues (such as artificial intelligence, the internet of things, outer space and its nexus with critical infrastructure, and quantum computing).
