Center for a New American Security

For A Project On Cyber Strategy Community Building

A grant to the Center for a New American Security would allow the organization to begin to build a network of technology and national security experts working to keep the Internet secure and open. The interdisciplinary network will begin to seed the field with practitioners who can generate actionable proposals to solve problems related to cybersecurity, data, and other thorny Internet issues with ethical considerations. The center proposes to use an iterative process to refine its network-building as it goes, providing it maximum capacity to adapt to the needs of participants and to current events.
