The Citizen Clinic is a public-interest cybersecurity clinic that supports the capacity of politically vulnerable organizations to defend themselves against online threats. Building off our research on the ecosystem providing technical assistance to civil society, the clinic supports interdisciplinary teams of students to assess threats to targeted organizations, recommend risk-appropriate mitigations, and to work collaboratively with clients to implement new policies and technical controls that enhance their cybersecurity. Learn more about Citizen Clinic.
Unprecedented cybersecurity challenges loom just beyond the horizon. Yet today’s operational security agenda is too narrow in scope to address the wide range of issues likely to emerge in the coming years. Cybersecurity Futures 2025 is a global initiative that aims to shape a forward-looking research and policy agenda that is intellectually and practically robust—and broadly applicable across countries and regions. Learn more about Cybersecurity Futures 2025.
Cybersecurity is challenging in part because it is difficult to understand. The Daylight Security Research Lab is working to shift the culture and dialogue around cybersecurity by transforming how people understand and identify the risks of digital technology. The DSRL generate new tools, practices, and representations to make the term “security” more specific and actionable for those who need it. Learn more about the Daylight Security Research Lab.
Artificial intelligence is expected to contribute transformative growth to the global economy, but these gains are currently poised to widen inequalities, stoke social tensions, and motivate dangerous national competition. The AI Security Initiative works across technical, institutional, and policy domains to support trustworthy development of AI systems today and into the future. AISI facilitates research and dialogue to help AI practitioners and decision-makers prioritize the actions they can take today that will have an outsized impact on the future trajectory of AI security around the world.
