Secure America SMART-R
We all agree that AMERICA is the most CYBER-RELIANT NATION on the planet and America’s reliance on cyberspace, grows by the millisecond and makes it our Nation’s “Nervous System.” Cyber predators (both foreign and domestic) recognize this reliance and AMERICAN CYBER TARGET VALUES and are acting accordingly. We must move immediately beyond the objectively unmeasurable goals of infrastructure protection and security-based preparedness and reduce our target values.
We are convinced investing in and dramatically accelerating the creation of resilient critical infrastructure(s) is the foundation for building sustainable National Security and Preparedness. We are also convinced that only by building and sustaining SMART-R© critical infrastructures will we eliminate “America’s [cyber] Achilles Heel,” and empower all Americans’ to ensure their safety, security, quality of life and future for this and generations to follow.
Preventing cyber-attacks and data breaches, requires C-Suite Executives and the Board to understand the risks to their business and the leadership required to implement the right security strategies. We invite You to join us to “Exchange Information” with other Thought Leaders and Executives committed to build and sustain SMART-R© (SMART + RESILIENT) infrastructures across the United States.
‘As a result, SMART-R Communities 2024-26 has launched to drive Transatlantic Trade, Technology, and Security Partnerships. We invite you to join our upcoming partnered training programs, business roundtables, and trade missions.
