CACI Announces Release Of Seventh Asymmetric Threat Symposium Report – Combating Asymmetric Threats: The Interplay Of Offense And Defense

CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) and the Center for Security Policy (CSP) today announced the release of Combating Asymmetric Threats: The Interplay of Offense and Defense, a report from the seventh symposium in the Asymmetric Threat symposia series co-sponsored by CACI, the U.S. Naval Institute (USNI), and CSP. Summarizing comments and discussions from the symposium, the report considers how the dynamics of offensive and defensive measures shape the character, conduct, and outcomes of asymmetric conflicts. Copies of the report may be downloaded from the CSP or CACI websites at www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org or www.caci.com, or from the dedicated Asymmetric Threat website at asymmetricthreat.net.

Held April 2, 2013 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, the symposium featured keynote speakers Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn, USA, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency; and Vice Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, USN, Director for Operations, Joint Staff. Panelists included leaders and experts from government, industry, and academia, examining whether the U.S. has forfeited its asymmetric advantages, and if so, how to reclaim those advantages and apply them to deter and defeat asymmetric threats.

According to the report, today’s national security challenges are predominantly hybrids: offense and defense; foreign and domestic; symmetric and asymmetric; synchronous and asynchronous; geographically focused and globally ubiquitous. The strategic environment will be shaped by the interaction of globalization, economic disparities, and competition for resources; the diffusion of technology and information networks whose very nature allows unprecedented ability to harm and even paralyze advanced nations; and systemic upheavals impacting the world order. For the U.S. to reclaim its asymmetric advantages, it will require multi-dimensional thinking, nuanced approaches, and nimble execution.

CACI Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, who provided welcoming remarks at the symposium, said, “CACI is proud to join our partners at the Center for Security Policy in publishing Combating Asymmetric Threats: The Interplay of Offense and Defense. We believe this report illustrates the inextricable link between offense and defense – and the struggle our nation faces in devising strategies that translate battlefield success into desired political results and lasting strategic advantages. We need a new paradigm, a fresh vocabulary, and agile approaches for today’s asymmetric threat arenas.”

As Naval Institute Chief Executive Officer Vice Admiral Peter H. Daly, USN (Ret.) said during the symposium, “Asymmetric warfare, in one form or another, has been with us for a long time. It’s not a new idea to avoid an enemy’s strength and to hit adversaries where they are weak. What is new is the modern world’s degree of globalization and interconnection, and the speed and reach of attacks in arenas far beyond the battlefield. We think this symposium provides a significant forum for developing new ways to meet these challenges.”

CSP President and Chief Executive Officer Frank Gaffney commented, “This seventh symposium on the asymmetric threat brings important new ideas to the national dialogue on how offensive and defensive capabilities must be joined in a sensible approach to countering asymmetric threats. In addition, it addresses concerns, so timely today, regarding whether living in a democracy creates an inherent conflict with an agile national security program, and how we can best preserve our freedoms while protecting our nation.”
