A Letter from the Co-Chairs

Welcome to the Cyber Readiness Institute (CRI).  Our work is focused on developing cyber risk management content and tools to help small and medium-sized businesses, in order to secure global value chains.

We look forward to working with senior leaders of companies globally and from different sectors to develop innovative ways for enterprises to collaborate with value chain partners to improve cybersecurity.  

By coming together, sharing best practices, developing practical resources, and effectively distributing these resources throughout the value chain, we hope to enable companies of all sizes to be more strategic and resilient in managing cybersecurity risk. 

We hope you will join us in this necessary and worthwhile effort.  


Mission Statement

The Cyber Readiness Institute (CRI) will convene senior leaders of global companies from across sectors to develop best practices for managing the people, processes, and technology needed for effective cybersecurity.  

This collective knowledge will inform the Cyber Readiness Institute’s development of practical content and tools to help small and medium-sized enterprises address growing cybersecurity threats, in order to secure global value chains.    

The Institute will also facilitate the workforce development needed for implementing these cyber risk management tools.
