The Cyber Conflict Studies Association (CCSA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and leading a diversified research agenda in the field of cyber conflict. CCSA’s vision is to be the premier thought leader in the field by fostering dialogue, leading research, and developing academic programs focused on the implications of cyber conflict.
To achieve this, CCSA promotes and leads international intellectual development efforts to advance the field of cyber conflict research. These activities include workshops that bring together professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss strategic issues surrounding cyber conflict and the publication of insightful research articles and position papers in its Journal of Cyber Conflict Studies.
The CCSA is collaborating with others in the community to establish a history writing contest. Please help us spread the word. Details are below:
