Cyber threats. Resource scarcity. Epidemics. Privacy in the age of big data.
These are wicked problems — security challenges that are global in scale, borderless by nature, interdependent and often have no clear solutions. These threats are driven by complex, interwoven sets of factors. They require a novel, more holistic approach centered on interdisciplinary research that spans the public, private and academic sectors.
GSI is ASU’s answer to those challenges. An initiative of ASU Knowledge Enterprise Development, we develop practical mission-relevant approaches and effective decision-oriented tools for policymakers and implementers, drawing upon our faculty’s expertise and connections with the defense, security and diplomacy communities. The goal is nothing short of enhanced national security and global impact.
