Strengthening the
Nation’s Critical

A cross-sector coalition reducing systemic risk to the critical functions that support our economic and national security.

Nation state adversaries and their proxies are becoming more sophisticated, aggressive, and persistent.

Operatives can infiltrate our technology, disrupting critical infrastructure.

SolarWinds, Colonial Pipeline, ShadowPad, the 2017 NotPetya attack, and attacks on foreign central banks each exploited cyber vulnerabilities damaging and disrupting peoples’ lives, government defenses, and economic security.

ARC members work to build resiliency, prevent, and mitigate the impact of these events.

We examine the points of connection and mutual reliance in lifeline sectors to develop mitigation strategies which reduce systemic risk.

Who We Are

Established by CEOs from leading financial services and energy companies, the ARC is a coalition that is identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating critical risks to their infrastructure which benefits the broader financial and energy sectors.
