Our History

The Cyber Readiness Institute was launched July 2017 by senior leaders in government, industry, and cybersecurity serving on the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity, including the Commissioners and the Executive Director. This independent, bipartisan Commission was tasked in 2016 to develop recommendations for securing the digital economy and provide a roadmap for the incoming Administration. The objective of CRI was to follow-up on the recommendations of the Commission Report, with a specific focus on providing prescriptive, accessible, and free content and tools to improve the resilience and readiness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to secure global value chains.
