Washington DC, June 6, 2023 —The CTA is pleased to announce the approval of a generous grant from Craig Newmark Philanthropies supporting our CTA mission to raise the level of cybersecurity across the digital ecosystem. The funds will be used to create joint reports on cyber threats and mitigation, combining the knowledge of CTA members and partners.

“I am very pleased that Craig Newmark Philanthropies has decided to support CTA’s mission,” said Michael Daniel, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTA. “We will use the funds to work with our members and partner organizations to identify under-reported cyber threats, provide information about those threats, and lay out how to mitigate them.  Strong philanthropic support enables organizations to pursue activities that benefit society broadly, including cybersecurity.  Craig is a leader in this area, and I hope that others will follow to expand the amount of funding available for these kinds of public missions.”  

Craig’s overall support for improving the protection of the internet is impressive and his generosity in supporting the CTA mission is much appreciated.
