Description

Talk by Mr. Francis X. Taylor, former Under Secretary of US Department of Homeland Security

The national security of the United States in the coming years will depend on how we assess the risks that impact our security and how we develop approaches to mitigate those risks. The risks range from:

  • nation-state competition for political, economic or military dominance in the world (e.g., Russia, China, Iran);
  • military conflict and tension globally (e.g., Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan) impacting the security of the United States and our allies
  • economic displacement and migration
  • international and domestic terrorism

The basis for developing sound strategies to mitigate and eliminate those risks is identifying and analyzing the factors that create and impact them. In his talk, General Taylor will share his thoughts on what is driving key national security risks and how we can successfully address them.
