Mission Essential Personnel, LLC (MEP) today announced its sponsorship of the 2011 Aspen Security Forum (ASF) annual conference, which will explore America's preparedness against terrorism. The Aspen Institute's Homeland Security Program, in partnership with The New York Times, will hold the conference July 27-30 in Aspen, Colorado.
"Despite the great recent success by the military and intelligence communities, threats to the U.S. and its interests abroad remain," said MEP CEO Chris Taylor. "The Aspen Security Forum brings together in an intimate setting leaders in policymaking, academia, and industry to address the tough questions about American security. MEP considers it an obligation to contribute to an intelligent discourse on national and homeland security.”
Clark Ervin, Director of the Homeland Security Program at the Aspen Institute, said, “The private sector plays a vital role in homeland security; MEP’s commitment to the Aspen Security Forum demonstrates that, and is an example of leadership we hope businesses across America will follow.”
Featured topics of the conference will include:
- Aviation security
- Maritime security
- Border security
- Mass transit security
- Critical infrastructure protection
- Counterterrorism strategy
