Cyberspace not only delivers socio-economic development but also facilitates understanding between countries, communities and people. However, cyber attacks and cybercrime prevent the global ICT community from drawing the full benefits of cyberspace. Responses to these challenges require a very high degree of international cooperation.
The Commonwealth, built on consensus and mutual support, is an ideal platform to build international cooperation on various aspects of cybersecurity. CTO’s Commonwealth Cybersecurity Forum brings together cybersecurity stakeholders from across the Commonwealth; from policy makers, regulators and implementing agencies to private sector and civil society. The Forum is a place to showcase expertise, build capacity, present new technologies and develop relationships. Importantly it will map out the future cooperation among Commonwealth countries in Cybersecurity.
