Top Foreign Policy Lawmakers Unite Around Global Tech Security Commission
Washington D.C. – A group of distinguished bipartisan leaders in foreign policy and national security, including Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Todd Young (R-IN), and Bill Hagerty (R-TN), as well as Representatives Michael McCaul (R-TX) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), serving as Honorary Co-Chairs of the Global Tech Security Commission, have issued a call to their fellow Members of Congress to join the effort to develop a Global Tech Security Strategy to defend freedom against technological authoritarianism.
In a “Dear Colleague” letter, the Honorary Co-Chairs of the Commission emphasized the critical importance of advancing a global tech security strategy in the face of mounting challenges from China to U.S. global leadership, security, and values. The Commission seeks to counter the rise of techno-authoritarianism by protecting shared democratic principles and liberties on which our nation and the free world are built. The Global Tech Security Commission was launched in response to the Congressional call for a thorough, bipartisan tech security playbook that would rally and unify like-minded countries, leverage the innovation and resources of the private sector, and build a global network to develop, protect and adopt trusted technologies.
