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 to think critically about major policy issues affecting society, and to impact the cybersecurity industry by presenting their ideas to leaders within the field. The 2019 competition asked teams to focus on issues pertaining to cyberware, law enforcement investigations, or data security.
