Abstract

Given the ubiquity of computer networks and our reliance as a society on their integrity and robustness, the quality of cybersecurity is an issue that affects everyone. Yet, cybersecurity policy making has remained almost entirely within the purview of lobbyists and technical experts. This article argues for both the plausibility and normative imperative of greater public participation in cyber policy making.
