The Policy Competition challenges contestants to think about the big picture of cyber security policy, economics, law, and governance. 

The purpose of this competition is to encourage students who are interested in the nexus of policy and emerging technology issues to think critically about major policy issues affecting society, and to impact the cyber industry by presenting their ideas to leaders within the field.

Any student interested in these issues, with whatever academic background -- law, policy, engineering, or other discipline-- is encouraged to apply.
