The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has launched Net Politics, a blog on cybersecurity, Internet governance, digital trade, and privacy. It will provide original insight, highlight notable research and analysis, and introduce new voices on the emerging politics of cyberspace.
“The rapid diffusion and adoption of digital and communication technologies raises profound questions for security, prosperity, privacy, and global order. This blog aims to further the debate about these important issues,” explains the blog’s lead author and Director of CFR’s Digital and Cyberspace Policy Program, Adam Segal, in his initial post.
