Program Overview
Individuals and institutions are increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks, such as network-based intrusions that disrupt productivity, jeopardize privacy and threaten national security. Smart and informed security of critical infrastructure and technology requires constant vigilance against cyber threats.

Cybersecurity: The Intersection of Policy and Technology is an executive program designed to focus on the intersection of policy and technology and how, together, they can address the critical threats of a cyber world. The objective is to bring together technologists and policymakers and provide them with a conceptual framework for the design of both cybersecurity policy and technology.

This intensive week-long program is led by a team of Harvard faculty members, policymakers, and leading practitioners in the field of cybersecurity, many of whom advise governments, agencies and industries around the world.

The Cybersecurity: The Intersection of Policy and Technology curriculum explores:

Technical and policy aspects of security, surveillance and conflict
Skills applicable to other situations in which policy and technology interact
Techniques of risk analysis and threat-modeling applicable to a broad set of problem
Lectures and case studies drawn from recent events will bring focus to issues at the intersection of cyber policy and technology. At the same time, group sessions will enable you to engage directly with the issues, solve problems and discuss how insights and cybersecurity measures can be applied in your own country or organization.
