New tenant at the Newseum

The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies on Wednesday announced plans to launch an advanced academic program focused on the intersection of cybersecurity, technology, intelligence and international affairs.

The program, called the Alperovitch Institute for Cybersecurity Studies, is named after the co-founder of the cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike, Dmitri Alperovitch.

In 2016, Crowdstrike was the first company to say the Russian government was behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee ahead of that year’s presidential election.

The institute, which will formally launch in September 2022 and is expected in 2023 to be housed in the building that formerly was the Newseum in Washington D.C., will provide Master’s, PhD and an Executive Leadership program to look at issues of cybersecurity policy.
