Independent Task Force Program

The Council on Foreign Relations sponsors Independent Task Forces to assess issues of critical importance to U.S. foreign policy. Diverse in backgrounds and perspectives, Task Force members work to reach meaningful consensus across partisan lines on matters of policy. Since the program’s inception in 1995, Task Forces have become a trademark of the Council. For more information, please contact [email protected]
Upcoming Task Force on Cybersecurity

CFR’s Independent Task Force on Cybersecurity is assessing U.S. interests in cyberspace and considering how to confront malign regimes and actors given the growing pace and magnitude of cyberattacks. The Task Force aims to set forth a renewed vision of U.S. foreign policy for an internet that is more fragmented, less free, and less secure. The Task Force is chaired by Jami Miscik, CEO and vice chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc. and former CIA deputy director for intelligence, and Nathaniel Fick, general manager of Elastic Security and former CEO of cybersecurity software company Endgame. CFR Senior Fellow Adam Segal serves as project director and CFR Adjunct Senior Fellow Gordon Goldstein serves as deputy director. The Task Force plans to release its consensus report in July 2022.
