The University of California, Irvine’s new Cybersecurity Policy & Research Institute (CPRI), which opened last year under the directorship of Bryan Cunningham, launched several interesting new cybersecurity initiatives earlier this week, including a research project on cyberattack attribution and supply chain security; a law enforcement cyber training program; a cyber victims defense clinic, and a curriculum development effort for high school students. The press release is here.

Bryan Cunningham is a Lawfare contributor and well-known to many Lawfare readers inside the U.S. government. Before he decamped to California, he was an attorney at CIA and later Deputy NSC Legal Adviser when I was Legal Adviser. He has special expertise in intelligence matters (especially electronic surveillance) and, not surprisingly, cybersecurity.
