The New America Cybersecurity Initiative’s Business-Policy Roundtable is a monthly forum that brings together providers and practitioners of cybersecurity with leading cybersecurity-policy thinkers. The focus of the Roundtable is on emerging policy issues and challenges for which good policy thinking has yet to emerge. We are actively looking to recruit a diverse, but select, group of partners from across the private sector to join us in this endeavor.
