Letter from the Directors


Dear Stakeholder,

The 2007/8 academic year was our busiest and most exciting in the Centers history. From the launch of the European chapter of our Roundtable to hosting a major security research conference, this will certainly be a year we remember. In this report, we outline our key achievements within all three of our mission areas: Scholarly Research, Executive Dialog, and MBA Program Enrichment.

Our security research agenda accelerated throughout the year, with significant impactboth within academia and the general public. The year began with a bang when Eric was invited to testify before Congress about our research on inadvertent disclosure and information leakage. Fueled by funding awards of over $1.5M, we added two new postdoc positions focused on additional security projects. That work was informed by our fall CISO workshop and through important corporate partnerships. The year ended in June with the Center hosting over 100 researchers from around the world for the Workshop on the Economics of Information Security.

Our progress in developing our programs for executives was no less impressive. While good momentum in the U.S. chapter of our Roundtable on Digital Strategies, we launched a new European chapter with an initial fall meeting in Zurich and then a spring roundtable in London hosted by BT. Pairing roundtables on M&A in San Jose and London, gave us new insight into executive thinking on the two continents. The initial enthusiasm was universal and the quality of founding firms like BMW, Nestl, Novartis, and BT, give us a h3 foundation to build on in 2008/09. Besides the growth in our roundtables, we also launched a new initiative in executive education. In collaboration with Tuck Exec Ed, we hosted 32 executives from 22 companies for our initial offering of Business Essentials for the Security Professional.

Internally, with the help of our MBA Fellows and with funding from IBM, we expanded our Tech@Tuck event to include a series of speakers throughout the year. As part of our Web 2.0 focus, we examined how new web technologies are changing innovation, customer collaboration, and recruiting. In collaboration with Tucks Career Development Center we sponsored a student competition on "The Future of Recruiting," that paired Thayer and Tuck students to develop Web 2.0 solutions to corporate recruiting challenges.

With all of these events, we enjoyed some of the broadest and most extensive media coverage in our history in high impact venues like ABC News, CIO Magazine, New York Times, PBS Newshour with Jim Lehrer, Wall Street Journal, and U.S. News & World Report.

To learn more, we invite you to read our Annual Report below to get all the details on events, people, and publications.

Corporate Roundtables

This year, the center organized four corporate roundtables for the Thought Leadership Roundtable on Digital Strategies (TLRDS) series. Each TLRDS roundtable consisted of 15-20 CIOs and functional VPs from Fortune 500 companies and 2-3 senior academics engaged in a day-long moderated roundtable discussion. Together they shared perspectives on a specific business issue, wrestled with concerns common across sectors, and worked to identify digital strategies that create and sustain competitive advantage.
