A New National Security Policy Framework for Space
Chris Carney authored the article “A New National Security Policy Framework for Space” for Real Clear Defense. The article examines how—in the wake of recent cyberattacks against the U.S. and U.S. based companies by rivals—benefits could be gained by crafting a “smart regulatory approach for space–one that doesn't just recognize the importance of America's global leadership role in technology but serves to reinforce it.” The need for this effort is “underscored by the context in which the SolarWinds and Microsoft [cyber] attacks appear: a staggering 400 percent increase in ever-sophisticated intrusions threatening organizations’ cybersecurity across the globe during the previous two years combined.”
Chris represented Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District for two terms and was a tenured professor of political science specializing in international relations at Penn State University. Prior to running for Congress, he worked at the Pentagon for four years on strategic analysis of the global terrorist threat, ran the Department of Defense’s Policy Counterterrorism Evaluation Group (PCTEG) and was the “Special Projects” intelligence officer for two tours during Operation Southern Watch. Chris received a Presidential appointment as a Commissioner on the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission (MCRMC) and served as a Senior Intelligence Specialist at NAI2O.
