This Nonprofit Tackles National Security Challenges Through an Innovation Ecosystem

TAC engages the broader defense and tech community to help develop the workforce and solve cybersecurity problems.

Part of tackling defense and national security challenges requires engaging academia, developing the workforce, and bringing in the next commercial technical capability or process. That’s the aim of the Technology Advancement Center, a nonprofit innovating around some of the Pentagon’s toughest cybersecurity and technology challenges.

CEO Gregg Smith, a longstanding technology leader, discusses how the organization fits into some of the Defense Department’s newest strategies such as those around artificial intelligence and zero trust. He also discusses his goals for TAC as it works with smaller organizations working at every angle of innovation to teach them how to do business with the government and bring new solutions into agencies like the U.S. Cyber Command, National Security Agency, DISA and more.
