A grant to Stanford University would be used to create the Cyber Initiative, which would pursue research, education, and engagement with stakeholders beyond the University. Through these efforts the Initiative would explore two cross-cutting themes within cybersecurity. The first topic would be trustworthiness and security. Research in this area would try to understand and address technological and social vulnerabilities to cyber risk. The second theme of governance, values, and the public interest would probe topics of morals and ethics relating to cyberspace. The overall goal of the Cyber Initiative is to increase research as well as broaden interest in cybersecurity, with a focus on cross-cutting strategies and inclusive dialogue.
