Members & Experts in National Security

Markle's national security members and experts have collaborated with their counterparts in industry, the public sector, think tanks, and nonprofit organizations to build broad consensus based on their diverse points of view. 

The foundation of this work has been laid by the Markle Task Force on National Security in the Information Age, a bipartisan group that has consulted with government officials, private industry, experts on technology and civil liberties, and foreign partners to find solutions critical to information sharing and collaboration problems.
