Free, virtual class: "Enhancing Cyber Policy Research with FOIA"

Cyber Vault Fellow shares tips and must-know details for navigating FOIA

What do effective cyber policy analysts, ground-breaking journalists, and engaged, informed citizens have in common? They understand the importance of accurate, unfiltered information, and appreciate the value of US government documents uncovered through the Freedom of Information Act.

Are you interested in learning more about FOIA and its impact on cyber policy research? Join us on Tuesday, October 19th at 11:00 am (EST) for our virtual event, "Enhancing Cyber Policy Research with FOIA," as part of CyberWeek 2021. Presented by Cristin J. Monahan, the Archive's Cyber Vault Fellow, this webinar will demonstrate tested strategies for filing FOIA requests and navigating the appeals process, share tips for reading between the lines of declassified documents, and examine cases where FOIA-derived materials have shed new light on the often overclassified world of cyber policy.

This event is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is required. Please click here to register. Have questions about the event? Please contact Cristin J. Monahan at
