Camille worked for several months with the Mozilla Foundation to orchestrate the study and resulting report. The study used a modified version of the Delphi research technique. More than 30 leading cybersecurity experts from a wide variety of backgrounds – including academia, civil liberties, government and military, security, and technology – participated in the study. Using a pseudonymous format to encourage candid feedback and open dialogue on the issues, the study tackles the following questions: what is the role of policy in cybersecurity? How consensual is the definition of cybersecurity? What are the current priorities for cybersecurity policy? Which issues get too little or too much attention? What are measures that a diverse set of cybersecurity actors can agree on as being both feasible and desirable?
The study produced a map of priorities, issues, and solutions for cybersecurity that highlights consensus and dissensus in the space. Join us to discuss the lessons learned in this process and the report's findings.
