Policy for Complexity Management in a System of Systems

Cloud computing is more than technology and engineering—it has real social and political consequences. CSI’s cloud computing projects analyze how cloud providers influence the pace and direction of economic growth, shape international security competition, chart the course for large-scale resilience, and mediate access to technologies that today inform changes in the global balance of power.


The Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, under the Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab), works at the nexus of geopolitics and cybersecurity to craft strategies to help shape the conduct of statecraft and to better inform and secure users of technology.
