With 30 years as a national security veteran, career U.S. State Department diplomat, and business leader, I'm certain that there has never been a more consequential or complex time than right now to protect our critical technologies from extreme threat. Industry and Government - along with our Allies, and Partners - MUST work together, quickly, on every front to deter our adversaries. It's the only way to maintain free, democratic societies where humankind can flourish. I'm deeply honored to serve on the Advisory Council with so many like-minded leaders who share this mission.
