Profile

Job Description:
**MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.
is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues. The Institute has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Marylands Eastern Shore. It also maintains offices in New York City and has an international network of partners.
Basic Function:
The senior staff writer will anchor a new initiative aimed at elevating the dialogue and understanding around cybersecurity and technology policy issues. This position will be the key voice and public face of a new nonprofit reporting initiative covering cyber policy and technology issues for a general audience. This position is ideal for a reporter with a strong personal voice and a deep, personal drive to understand how technology is changing our society; the right person combines a columnists voice with a wire service writers precision.
Cybersecurity is modern life. Its the way we bank, shop, learn. And, increasingly, its the way we drive, heat our homes, and even vote. Protecting our digital lives is no longer just about ensuring we dont lose our family picturesits about protecting our values, our health, our culture, and our democracy. The attacks of the last decade by nation-states, organized crime groups, and even individual hackers threaten to undermine trust in not just our institutions but also in the very information that powers our society, from financial and medical records to the news that informs our society. Figuring out how to manage these risks is critical as we stand on the cusp of another societal transformationthe move to the so-called internet of things where connected devices include everything from our cars, drones in the sky and even to pacemakers embedded in our hearts.
Yet, despite its critical importance to our country and our economys future, the understandingamong the public generally and policy-makers specificallyremains poor. Most coverage of the topic is not aimed at a general audience and is too often impenetrable without inside knowledge of the policy-making process or a Ph.D in computer science. Cybersecurity is too important an issue to be understood as poorly as it is. We aim to change that by building a conversational and intriguing platform to highlight key trends in cybersecurity and the intersection of national security and technology.
This new effort, aimed at producing original insights and original journalism, published through **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. and other traditional media partners, will seek to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats, explain complex policy debates in plain English, and provide a foundation of understanding for high-level people and organization leaders whose primary responsibilities dont focus on cybersecurity threats. The goal will be to weave together the threads of each days news from Washington, Silicon Valley, and the security industry globally to understand the larger picture.
