The National Security Archive on Wednesday launched a website, dubbed the Cyber Vault, that contains a cache of cybersecurity documents from U.S. and foreign agencies, international organizations and cybersecurity firms.
The project aims to provide insight into cybersecurity for all stakeholders despite the issue of “excessive government secrecy,” according to the website.
“The growing prominence of cyber activity as a global security concern with tangible effects on everyday lives has given rise to the production of a vast amount of documentation by governments and private industry,” the National Security Archive said in a statement.
The project seeks to “broaden public understanding of the nature, history and conduct of U.S. foreign and national security policy,” according to a statement from the nonprofit research organization housed at George Washington University.
Jeffrey T. Richelson, an expert on intelligence and national security issues, will oversee the website.
