Bio

Biographical Sketch

Allan Friedman is a Visiting Scholar at the the Cyber Security Policy Research Institute in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at George Washington University, where he works on cybersecurity policy. 

Wearing the hats of both a technologist and a policy scholar, his work spans computer science, public policy and the social sciences, and has addressed issues ranging from electronic medical records to telecommunications policy. His recent work has focused on the economic aspects of information security. He is the coauthor of Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press, 2014).

Prior to joining CSPRI, Friedman was a Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and the research director for the Center for Technology Innovation.  Before moving to Washington, he was Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University Computer Science department, where he worked on cyber security policy, privacy-enhancing technologies and the economics of information security. Friedman was also a Fellow at the Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, where he worked on the Minerva Project for Cyber International Relations. He has also received fellowships from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and the Harvard Program on Networked Governance. He has a degree in Computer Science from Swarthmore College, and a PhD in Public Policy from Harvard University.
