The Madison Policy Forum was formed by Michael Sheehan and Vincent Viola with the aim of creating a balanced and fact-based dialogue between public and private sector experts to address current national security issues. The goal of each forum conference and subsequent report is to clearly, specifically, and concisely describe the nature of the selected threat to our national security. Policy recommendations will be provided as appropriate but are secondary to a clear description of the issues that will assist in the development of sound national policy. Each conference will produce a report that will include fact sheets, Q&A’s with selected experts, and an overview essay.

For a second year in a row, Madison Policy Forum convened a selected cohort of promising mid-career leaders from both the military and business communities for a series of seminars. Fellows participated in a series of dialogues on the topic of building a national strategy in the context of an increasingly cyber world. While government and business leaders are well acclimated to challenges posed by the physical, especially in terms of conflict and competition, the cyber world poses a different set of policy challenges for both the business and military communities that our fellowship class is uniquely equipped to explore.
