Cyber Grants

As Internet traffic continues its rapid growth and new technologies affect every aspect of our lives, the applicable laws, norms and policies � as well as the decision-makers that shape them � are struggling to keep up. High profile breaches in both the public and private sectors � at Sony Pictures, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Democratic National Committee, among many others � underscore the magnitude of the risks we face and the need for informed policy that identifies and balances necessary tradeoffs. The Hewlett Foundation makes grants to proactively define, research and manage the burgeoning intersections between people and digital technologies. The Cyber Initiative seeks to cultivate a field that develops thoughtful, multidisciplinary solutions to complex cyber challenges and catalyzes better policy outcomes for the benefit of society.
