U.S. Cyber Policy: Intersection of Private Sector and Government Intelligence Community
Ronald A. Marks
Chair, Intelligence Program, Daniel Morgan Graduate School
President, Intelligence Enterprises
Marks is available to discuss the intersection of the private sector and the government intelligence community and the enhancement of the U.S.'s cyber capabilities: "As the Trump administration moves forward with its cyberspace policy, it is crucial to get these squabbling parties together and encourage relationships between the two, taking the best of both. The laissez-faire attitude of Silicon Valley has to bend somewhat to U.S. government guidance and protection, and the U.S. government simply has to stop overregulating with multiple agencies, providing confusing messages and contacts with the private sector."
Based in Washington, D.C., Marks is currently president of Intelligence Enterprises, a national security-consulting firm composed of a network of former senior national security officials. He spent 16 years with the Central Intelligence Agency, during which time he occupied a number of increasingly senior positions ranging from clandestine spy to Senate liaison for five directors. These positions include special assistant to the ADCI for Military Support, U.S. State Department Program director for law enforcement issues in Russia and Eastern Europe, and a senior budget director at the National Reconnaissance Office. Since leaving government, Marks has been a senior defense contractor and a software executive.

Many Countries Lagging on Implementation of Support for Tobacco Cessation
International Centre for Tobacco Cessation
Article 14 of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control recommends provision of evidence-based support for tobacco cessation, but many countries are lagging in implementation – leading to gaps in helping patients quit tobacco. Raw was the lead author on an editorial, endorsed by more than 70 global leaders in tobacco cessation, that sets out actions countries can take to support tobacco dependence treatment, focusing on low-cost, broad-reach interventions. Says Raw: "Effective tobacco cessation support will help us reach the goal of reducing premature mortality from noncommunicable diseases, but countries worldwide are not adequately implementing treatment support. It's time to improve the support offered to tobacco users who want to stop."
