Cybersecurity clinics create online defense for the public good

July 7, 2022

“The point of the Consortium is to make it easy for faculty at any university to convince their administration that they could quickly launch a clinic of their own,” said Larry Susskind, Ford Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning at MIT and director of the MIT Cybersecurity Clinic. “Consortium meetings provide opportunities for university faculty to access the advice and materials they need at no cost. In this way, the usual obstacles to starting up new clinics can be sidestepped easily.”

"Seed funding from New America’s Public Interest Technology University Network helped launch the Consortium of Cybersecurity Clinics — and expand a new model for digital security assistance."
