Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity Fund (CLTC)

The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity is a research and collaboration hub housed within the University of California, Berkeley School of Information (I School). Launched in 2015 with a seed grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in 2015, CLTC’s mission is to design and deploy visionary solutions to cybersecurity issues that arise wherever humans and digital systems interact, based on a long-term vision of the internet and its future. Working with researchers from UC Berkeley and outside organizations, the Center is building a diverse community of partners to advance concepts, technologies, and recommendations that will help governments, corporations, and individuals better prepare for the challenges of cybersecurity throughout the 21st century. The Center's research, education, and engagement efforts are focused on issues ranging from addressing workforce shortages in cybersecurity and envisioning new cybersecurity governance and regulatory regimes to parsing the security implications of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

In the next two years, we will expand our work to incorporate and address a more international audience, which is becoming increasingly critical for cybersecurity research and policy as the ‘global’ digital infrastructure differentiates and partially fragments around national boundaries. Your gift will help us to pursue these initiatives more boldly, and make the internet a safer environment for the next generation of human, economic, and political development..
