Aspen Security Forum

The Forum is an annual summer gathering at our signature "Aspen Meadows" campus in Colorado of top-level present and former government officials from all relevant homeland security/counterterrorism agencies (the White House; Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State, Justice, and Treasury; the intelligence community; and Congress); industry leaders (large and small homeland security/counterterrorism-related companies, as well as private equity investors, merchant and investment bankers, venture capitalists, and other financiers); leading thinkers (in other think tanks and academe); nationally noted print and broadcast journalists; and concerned citizens. During three days of in-depth conversation, participants explore various aspects of cyber security; intelligence; counterterrorism strategy; aviation security; maritime security; border security; mass transit security; critical infrastructure protection; "soft targets" security; terrorism finance; and more.

Aspen Security Forum - Doing More with Less

Doing More with Less—Simply an Oxymoron or Also an Imperative: Refashioning Today's Pentagon to Fight the Wars of the Future

The leaders of the Pentagon today cannot afford to be merely expert military strategists and prescient forecasters of future security threats. In this age of austerity, they must also be skilled at stretching every dollar to the maximum to ensure that America remains the preeminent world power. The Department of Defense's “COO” will discuss the challenge of maintaining America's place in an ever more complicated world, while dealing with an unprecedented budget crisis.

Dr. Ashton B. Carter, Deputy Secretary of Defense

MODERATOR: David Sanger, Chief Washington Correspondent, The New York Times
