IPRI’s cybersecurity work focuses on the technical and policy aspects of security issues as they relate to the communication networks and software systems affecting the global society and economy.

Our multidisciplinary cybersecurity work covers: the encryption debate, accountability, securing core economic and social infrastructure, measuring cyber risk, cryptography, data sharing, securing the Internet of Things, and developing secure communication channels between ISPs and users.
