About the Global Tech Security Commission:

The Atlantic Council’s Global China Hub and Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue’s Global Tech Security Commission is a nonpartisan initiative to develop a Global Tech Security Strategy for safeguarding freedom from technological authoritarianism. The Commission is co-chaired by Keith Krach, chairman and co-founder of the Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue and Kersti Kaljulaid, former president of the Republic of Estonia.

The commission’s final report, to be released in spring 2023, will articulate a strategic vision for technological advances that can be trusted to serve the common good. It will serve as a playbook for like-minded partners to collectively develop, promote, and protect technological advances that advance freedom and defeat authoritarian attempts to limit it.

Selected excerpts:

“The key to securing freedom for the next generation is securing technology. Tomorrow’s tech must be trusted tech developed and protected by a global trust network of likeminded countries, companies, and individuals who respect the rule of law, human rights, labor practices, national sovereignty, and the environment,”
