Aspen Digital

US Cybersecurity Group

A closeup of the "A" in Aspen Digital's brand mark, framed by lines of descending shades of red.
We convene US-based leaders in cybersecurity policy to forge consensus on and develop solutions to key cyber issues.
Our US Cybersecurity Group is the leading cross-sector, public-private forum for promoting a secure future for America’s institutions, infrastructure, and individuals – in cyberspace and beyond.

The Challenge

While the world is a better place because of the rapid pace of technology innovation, we need stronger — and faster — solutions to keep pace with the ever-evolving digital threat landscape. We are at the early stages of what will be a long fight against cyber threats. If we don’t act fast to change our approach, the connectivity that has been an important driver of prosperity and strength for the past forty years could be used to disastrous effect in the next twenty.

Our Approach

We convene and guide both government and industry leaders to discuss modern threats, and offer concrete, implementable policy solutions to help shape a safe and secure online environment.
