To answer critical questions about national and homeland security, the Aspen Institute’s Homeland Security Program presented the eighth annual Aspen Security Forum. The Forum began the evening of Wednesday, July 19 and ended on Saturday, July 22, 2017.
Each summer, the key security issues of the day are explored in detail during three days of in-depth discussion by:
• Top level present and former government officials from all relevant agencies such as the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State, Justice, and the Treasury;
• Industry leaders, including large and small national security-related companies, as well as private equity investors, merchant and investment bankers, venture capitalists, and other financiers;
• Thought leaders in other think tanks and academe; and,
• Nationally noted print and broadcast journalists.
