The Tortora Brayda Institute is looking to reshape and develop alliances and partnering practices with a view to improving and securing business and economies.

A core concept of the institute, the Think Tank for AI & Cybersecurity Partnerships is the facet of the organization that brings together experts and leaders from the public and private sectors and academia from around the world to reshape and develop collaboration and partnering practices while embracing the most critical technology growth. With a strong focus on the core topics of Offensive and Defensive Cybersecurity, Cyber Resilience, Artificial Intelligence & Ethics, Machine Learning, and Secure Cloud Infrastructure, it provides a platform to view existing problems through a new lens and offer breakthrough visionary solutions.

With the desire to continue conversations on the breakthrough visionary solutions, Task Forces have evolved to focus on specific in-depth topics such as Autonomous Government, the National AI and Cybersecurity ISAO (NAIC-ISAO), AI for Good, Critical Infrastructure, Quantum Computing and the AI and Cybersecurity Human Talent Gap to drive conversations and envision new opportunities.
