The Opportunity

We believe in a future for everyone. As we engage directly in our communities, we must work from a shared place of trust. We know that our communities care deeply about how information is collected, used, and shared, and so do we. So when CZI builds products, supports grantees, makes venture investments, and purchases services from third-parties we consider their privacy and security and at every step of the process.

You will drive the critical steps of the incident response, and apply learnings toward our ability to be increasingly proactive in the future.
