Program areas at Business Executives for National Security

Meetings, programs development, and implementation: bens serves as a primary channel for meaningful exchange between senior private sector Executives and leaders from across the National Security enterprise. Through hosting events and conversations around the country with these leaders, as well as self-financed visits to sites of relevance to National and international Security, bens makes it possible for private sector leaders to learn about major issues confronting the National Security community and to share insights and best practices from industry that could help address their current challenges. In 2018, bens hosted a total of 144 events and traveled to 16 unique locations in the u.s. and around the world to observe key military and Security missions firsthand and participate in thoughtful dialogue that strengthens u.s. Security.

Project development and implementation: bens work is focused in three major areas designed to meet the needs of our National Security partners and most effectively address the Business practice components of the major National Security challenges the united states faces: (1) the 21st century National Security workforce, since recruiting and sustaining a talented workforce is critical to tackling 21st century challenges, especially safeguarding National and homeland Security; (2) National Security strategic modernization/organizational transformation, because foreign adversaries and malicious actors continuously probe both the public and private sector infrastructures for vulnerabilities to exploit and the federal government has recognized that private sector involvement and engagement is critical to meet these challenges; (3) defense reform, where, as the pentagon sought to overhaul its Business operations in several critical areas, bens has been working with dod Business reform leaders in some of these areas, including technology and Business systems reform.
