The U.S. national security apparatus—which includes the defense, intelligence, law enforcement, and homeland security communities—will become exponentially more reliant on technology in the coming decade. This technological progress will be driven by U.S. industry (rather than the government itself), and many of these security-based capabilities will have their roots in commercial and entertainment-based applications. Because of this reliance, foreign intelligence collection and corporate espionage efforts will increasingly be directed at industry targets rather than traditional “espionage” targets. In light of this, if the United States is to protect and maintain its security capabilities, both the government and industry will have to adopt new paradigms for assessing vulnerabilities and protecting technology, trade secrets, proprietary information, and fundamental research and development.
