New Resource Will Acquire and Publish Primary Documents on All Aspects of Cyber Activity

Washington, D.C., March 30, 2016 – The National Security Archive is pleased to announce the launch of its new Cyber Vault project web site

 The growing prominence of cyber activity as a global security concern with tangible effects on everyday lives has given rise to the production of a vast amount of documentation by governments and private industry.  The Cyber Vault will serve as a centralized repository for key parts of the documentary record on this critical topic.

Directed by Jeffrey T. Richelson, an international expert and widely published author on intelligence and national security issues, the Cyber Vault project will add to its holdings on a regular basis.  All materials will be fully searchable and permanently stored on the project site.  The project aims to enhance the National Security Archive’s mission to broaden public understanding of the nature, history and conduct of U.S. foreign and national security policy.

Funding for The Cyber Vault has been provided by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
