Members participated this week in a wargame created by the Naval War College, CSIS, and MIT, simulating a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. Featured several months ago by the Wall Street Journal, this exercise was an early foray into how BENS might work to expand the inclusion of economic interests in national security wargaming and enhance the role of business leaders in developing our nation’s capability to prepare for future conflicts. For more information, contact Jamie Hood on the BENS Programs Team.

This week BENS Members Hernan AlbamonteJoe DeMarco, and Dr. Kathleen Kiernan joined leadership from HSI and INTERPOL Washington for a panel discussion about the role of public and private sector cooperation in federal law enforcement. The event was organized by the US State department and was attended by police and justice officials from more than 50 different countries.
