We live in an increasingly interconnected world. Populations are concentrating in cities as the world urbanizes. Communications, financial, and transportation networks are more deeply linked as the world globalizes.
Concentration and connectivity brings significant advantages but also create security weakness that, left unaddressed, can threaten people and property at the scale of national catastrophe and individual tragedy.
Accidents happen, and weakness can be exploited by individuals and small groups who want to cause harm. We look to invest in breakthrough products and services that protect people and property while promoting an open society. We want the benefits of safe neighborhoods, safe workplaces and safe networks to be shared by all regardless of geography or income. Safety and security are a vital prerequisite to full participation in economic and civic life.
