Matt Blunt

54th Governor of Missouri; President, American Automotive Policy Council

Commissioner for Autonomous and Electric Vehicles

As the U.S. auto industry continues to drive the truly transformational technologies in electric vehicles and automated driving, we must work diligently, across sectors to ensure that these new technologies are properly safeguarded. The work of the Global Tech Security Commission will be a catalyst in bringing U.S. technology leaders together to not only guard against existing threats to our cutting-edge technology, but also formulate proactive strategies to combat adversarial threats to America’s future technological leadership. So I am honored to have been selected to serve on the Commission, and I am eager to work with leaders from other critical U.S. industries to carry out the important work and mission of the Global Tech Security Commission.
