Cybersecurity & Standards

Public and private-sector entities face a growing challenge in protecting the internet against malicious actors. In working to make the internet more secure, it’s essential to support fundamental human rights when creating and deploying technology. By engaging a team of technical experts in our policy advocacy, CDT develops policies and technical standards that respect fundamental rights while making critical communications infrastructure more secure. From our engagement in a number of core internet standards & governing bodies, to our work to improve the cybersecurity of elections worldwide, CDT’s is working to ensure that fundamental rights are embedded in the technical fabric of our digital world. We also work to empower individuals to take greater control of their own cybersecurity, while serving as key technical translators for policymakers working to address a range of societal issues impacted by new technologies.
