Facebook invites submissions for “Secure the Internet Grants”
As part of its pledge to offer $1 million in defense research, Facebook is accepting proposals to "Secure the Internet," Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos announced in a blog post yesterday.

Focus areas include "anti-phishing," "abuse detection and reporting," and "security for users in emerging markets," among others. Proposals are due by March 30, 2018, with the winners announced at Black Hat USA 2018.
