Operational Collaboration

The Aspen Cybersecurity Group is a cross-sector public-private forum comprised of former government officials, Capitol Hill leaders, industry executives, and respected voices from academia, journalism, and civil society that have come together to translate pressing cybersecurity conversations into action. At its inaugural meeting in January 2018, the group decided to focus its efforts in three key areas of need as requiring urgent attention by a group that crosses party lines and includes both policymakers and practitioners: (1) improving operational collaboration between the public and private sector; (2) developing the skills and education necessary for a workforce that will increasingly confront cybersecurity challenges; and (3) securing and ensuring confidence in emerging technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT).
