Cybersecurity has become a central political and economic challenge for governments and businesses around the world. But while election hacking, malware, and cyber warfare have dominated the public discourse, the academic and policy communities have largely ignored the diverse industrial policies that governments can use to bolster their domestic cybersecurity and technology industries.
This paper provides an overview of many of the industrial policy approaches available to policymakers seeking to advance their cybersecurity industries, with an investigation of the consequences of policies for national and international economies as well as global governance frameworks.
