The Foundation for Defense of Democracies Names Partner Caroline Brown a National Security Fellow

Washington – October 21, 2020: The Foundation for Defense of Democracies named Crowell & Moring partner Caroline Brown a 2021 National Security Fellow. Members of the fellow class include bipartisan national security professionals from the military, the government, journalism, and the private sector.

According to FDD, the National Security Fellows Program “provides exclusive opportunities to mid-career national security professionals, combining mentorship by FDD experts with year-long programming that includes off-the-record conversations with high-level government officials, policy experts, and ambassadors; leadership development skill-building workshops; and networking opportunities. The fellows discuss pressing national security issues, such as global terrorist networks, cyber warfare, great power competition, and the U.S. role in the Middle East, and they participate in practical skill-building workshops.”

Brown, who has over a decade of experience as a national security attorney at the U.S. Departments of Justice and the Treasury, provides strategic advice to clients on national security matters, including anti-money laundering (AML) and economic sanctions compliance and enforcement challenges, cybersecurity, investigations, and cross border transactions, including review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and Team Telecom. Brown previously worked in the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Security Division on counterespionage, cybersecurity, and counterterrorism matters and investigations, and sat on both CFIUS and Team Telecom. At the U.S. Department of the Treasury, she worked on sanctions, AML, and other national security issues relevant to the nation’s financial system as an attorney for the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and in the Department’s Office of General Counsel, Enforcement and Intelligence, which provides counsel to the Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. Brown was also detailed to the White House for a year, where she coordinated communications strategy focused on national security.
