International Policy Institute

Cybersecurity Initiative

International cybersecurity policy has swiftly become one of the world’s most pressing issues. Lack of shared international norms, rampant cybercrime, uneven cybersecurity capacity, and the ever deepening ubiquity of connected devices create pressing international challenges. Drawing on the Jackson School’s deep regional and global expertise, the Cybersecurity Initiative steps into this landscape offering classes, research, events, and fora for the exchange in expertise between stakeholders.

The major components of the Cybersecurity Initiative are:

  1. Producing student and faculty written research briefs on global cybersecurity policy issues,
  2. Facilitating the exchange of expertise between higher education and the public and private sectors through an Initiative built network of cybersecurity professionals,
  3. Convening events on emerging cybersecurity topics,
  4. Creating innovative cybersecurity policy focused curriculum and learning opportunities for students.
  5. Integrating student researchers into the Initiative’s work, giving them valuable experience through intensive, mentored research experiences focused on tasks given to them by external partners.
