The Aspen Institute’s US and Global Cybersecurity Groups welcome new members at the frontline of technology and security. These additions will bring valuable new experiences and perspectives to the Institute’s cybersecurity efforts, part of Aspen Digital.

The leading cross-sector, public-private forum for promoting a secure future for America’s institutions, infrastructure, and individuals, the US Group welcomes a new co-chair:

  • Kemba Walden, President, Paladin Global Institute. Kemba served as Acting National Cyber Director until November, and offers a wealth of expertise in cybersecurity policy and strategy.

Walden’s addition will build on the Group’s future-focused priorities, much of which is reflected in the ONCD National cyber strategy she oversaw. Walden will join the other US co-chairs, Yasmin Green, CEO of Jigsaw at Google; Chris Krebs, Senior Newmark Fellow in Cybersecurity at Aspen Institute; and Gary Steele, President & CEO of Splunk.

A collective of cybersecurity experts committed to democracy and freedom online, the Global Group welcomes two new co-chairs:

  • Yasmin Brooks, Partner, Brunswick Group. Yasmin has held a number of senior roles in the UK Government, mostly recently as Director General for Digital and Media at Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and will  provide fresh perspectives and expertise in cybersecurity innovation and collaboration.
  • Jorge Guajardo, Partner, Dentons Global Advisors. Among other roles in the Mexican Government, Jorge served as Mexico’s Ambassador to China and brings his extensive background in international affairs and cybersecurity to the role of co-chair.

Guajardo and Brooks will join the Global Group’s other co-chairs, David Koh, Chief Executive of the Singapore Cybersecurity Agency, and Corey Thomas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rapid7. 

Aspen Digital extends special thanks to Marina Kaljurand, Member of the European Parliament, for her tenure as a founding co-chair of the Global Cyber Group. Marina will continue her contributions to the Global Group as a member. Her unwavering dedication and leadership have played a pivotal role in shaping the Group’s objectives and initiatives to date.

These individuals underscore the commitment of the Aspen Institute’s US and Global Cybersecurity Groups to promote collaboration and advance substantive progress in cybersecurity policy and strategy.
