Jay Healey Appointed to Lead Cyber Statecraft Initiative

Congratulations to Friend of Kyrus and former colleague Jay Healey on his appointment to the Atlantic Council's Cyber Statecraft Initiative. From the PR:

“Jason has a deep understanding of the strategic issues that the United States and its friends, allies, and partners around the world face in cyberspace,” said Frederick Kempe, President and CEO. “Jason is an ideal cyber leader-practitioner to lead the Council’s work to promote collaborative, international, and multi-lateral approaches to strategic cyber issues.”

“The Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative is the first of its kind to define how cyber issues can and should become a tool of international statecraft," said Mark McLaughlin, CEO of VeriSign. The Cyber Statecraft Initiative, a multi-year effort funded by VeriSign, will focus on finding international consensus among like-minded nations on the challenges in cyber security. In particular, Healey will focus on international engagement on norms and other challenges of cyber conflict through thought leadership and by providing a platform for global governments, corporations, and other non-governmental organizations.
