While incoming Secretaries of State and Defense, and the leaders of the various agencies within the intelligence community, can count on having the counsel of a wide range of former government officials from both parties serving on official and unofficial advisory boards, and a host of scholars at universities and think tanks who make a career of analyzing and opining on various “national security” issues, “homeland security” is still a new field without such an “ecosystem,” for want of a better word. In the absence of such an ecosystem, it is our hope that you will find the Aspen Homeland Security Group to be a vitally important support network for you and your management team.
