for the Transformative Cyber Innovation Lab  
A grant to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies will support the Transformative Cyber Innovation Lab (TCIL). TCIL drives revolutionary, societywide improvement in cybersecurity through the innovative synthesis of technology, policy, and governance. It seeks to break down the walls that presently isolate the esoteric dialogues happening within the technology, policy, and governance communities.
for a project to study cyber-enabled economic warfare  
A grant to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies will help it provide a base for the policy community to better understand cyber-enabled economic warfare. The project will develop a framework for understanding key concepts and explain how the evolution of information technologies is impacting the deployment and development of economic warfare tools. It will spur more informed public discussion of cyber-enabled economic warfare, thereby helping to ensure systemic financial integrity at a time when cyber-attacks against the economic sector continue to increase.
