In 2018, the GLI hosted 25 relevant policy makers, legal experts, academics, developers and others involved with cybersecurity in government institutions, the private sector, law enforcement and advocacy groups from Ireland and Northern Ireland engaged with Boston College and their American counterparts during an 11-day program in Washington, D.C. and Boston, MA.

Participants examined U.S. and international initiatives to promote and protect information technology systems, interfaces, and assets within government, business, and the community. The program looked at legal structures and policies and practices of the U.S. cybersecurity community and included an examination of the legislative and political aspects of current and pending efforts to enhance cybersecurity in the United States at the Federal, state, and local level. Participants examined how these efforts work effectively across regions and borders and between institutions.

Currently, the GLI partners with the U.S. Embassy in Dublin and Woods College of Advancing Studies, to support the Tech Impact Fulbright at Boston College and “Cyber Security Expert-in-Residence” program in Dublin.
