Security Policy Reform Council
The Security Policy Reform Council (SPRC) seeks to transform the paradigms that govern the design and execution of security policy and programs and to serve as a thought leader on security issues. The Council works with industry and government stakeholders to identify and mitigate security challenges, develop security solutions, advocate for reforms to enhance the effectiveness of security policy and programs, and enhance industry’s ability to support and protect national security. By convening security experts in government, industry, and academia, the Council promotes collaboration, information-sharing, and ongoing exchanges of views between the public and private sectors.
