The UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) is shaping cybersecurity research and practice, based on a long-term vision of the internet and its future. Funded through a generous grant from the Hewlett Foundation, the CLTC has a mission to design solutions to cybersecurity issues that could arise wherever humans and machines interact.
From its home in the UC Berkeley School of Information, this unique center is concerned with the human and digital aspects of cybersecurity, which is not just about engineering or computer science, but is increasingly intrinsic to economics, political science, law, anthropology, psychology, and nearly every other domain. CLTC is building a diverse community of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to advance research, technologies, and recommendations that will help governments, corporations, and individuals better prepare for the challenges of cybersecurity through the 21st century. CLTC’s research framework is based upon a series of evolving scenarios crafted to shed light on multiple possible futures for how the internet and cybersecurity could change.
