The Fundamental Problem
Criminal activities, by their very nature, are opportunistic and rapidly evolving, leaving many government agencies structurally, technically and psychologically ill-equipped to deal with these asymmetric threats.
There will always be a lag time between adaptive criminal activities and society’s ability to counter these threats. For example:
- It takes years to develop new laws to deal with specific threats.
- Government agencies have budgets and long-term plans that are misaligned with their requirements to counter rapidly changing, complex threats.
- The risk-reward-ratio for criminals and the outcomes of the justice system are not balanced.
AOG seeks to counter these threats by engaging with veterans and thought leaders, across the globe, to develop and deploy rapidly morphing asymmetric networks to counter networks.
AOG is developing centers for
Advisory and Training
and is focusing on changing games and boundary conditions more quickly than others can respond.
