The university recently launched a program in cybersecurity and policy involving Fletcher and the computer science department. The focus is to combine tech and policy training by introducing new courses, research, and outreach that lead to effective career planning and internship opportunities in this realm. This program grant will allow for three main efforts: (a) focused research on the organizations best suited for developing cryptographic standards, (b) development of courses that bridge policy and technical divides, and (c) a student symposium in cybersecurity.
