Transformative Cyber Innovation Lab


Even with the power of our vast national resources, we still stand in an increasingly darkening shadow of a devastating, national-scale cyberattack that, by taking down even a part of our critical national infrastructure, will make our country as physically vulnerable as it has ever been. While the analysis of the threat and the adversary’s intentions and capabilities in the cyber domain must continue, we can no longer simply study the problem. What is needed is a cyber innovation lab dedicated to aggressively converting the urgent need faced by our society, our economy, and our defense establishment into transformative solutions for those vulnerabilities.

The Transformative Cyber Innovation Lab (TCIL or Lab) will find and nurture technologically feasible, testable pilot projects which begin to solve some of the hardest cyber problems afflicting the national security industrial base and our country. Our mission is to help shorten the lag between idea and piloting, and between piloting and adoption of potential solutions to the thorniest of cyber problems.
