Exploring new frontiers at the intersection of national security and entrepreneurship.
Thanks for joining us for our latest edition of “Notes from the Frontier.” We hope to keep you in the loop each month on the new ventures we are pursuing, highlight our partnerships, and shine a light on the unique and important impact our clients are having at the intersection of national security and entrepreneurship. Each month, we will be rounding up our top social media content and sharing with you what we are reading.
We hope to inspire you to explore new frontiers and visualize the future of American innovation and discovery.
Top News: This month, we highlighted our client, Logically, landing its new Vice President of Strategic Operations: Former Acting Under-Secretary for Intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security, Brian Murphy. Murphy’s experience in defense has prepared him extensively for his new role, where he will be partnering with U.S. government agencies, companies, civil society groups, academia, and NGOs to combat misinformation and disinformation as it presents itself online.
"During my career, I have seen first hand how disinformation and misinformation pose an existential threat to our society, and I share Logically's ongoing and earnest desire to make a real difference. My new position allows me to continue to contribute to the fight against these corrosive threats with a company that has the advanced tools needed to do so at speed and at scale. I look forward to working with multiple government bodies, companies, and other affected organizations to help them tackle these issues with greater impact."
