CSIS Announces New Cyber Policy Task Force

WASHINGTON, November 3, 2014— The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is launching a Cyber Policy Task Force to take a new and honest look at the current state of cybersecurity and address U.S. action in this realm. This two-year long project will examine cybersecurity strategies and legislation, and identify lessons learned from these experiences.

The Task Force will be composed of cross-sector groups with stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and civil society.  It will convene leading experts with extensive experience in policy and cybersecurity who are committed to making a meaningful contribution to policy and legislation.

Building on previous successful efforts in cybersecurity that CSIS has organized, the Task Force will produce forward-looking, actionable recommendations to make cyberspace stable and secure in an environment of evolving geopolitics and technologies that will reshape the internet.  

The CSIS Cyber Policy Task Force will address both domestic and international cyber policy issues, as well as outline a longer-term strategy for tackling hard policy issues in cyberspace.
