Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World
Digital technology touches virtually every aspect of daily life today. Social interaction, healthcare activity, political engagement or economic decision-making – digital connectivity permeates it all, and the dependence on this connectivity is growing swiftly. Greater reliance on a networked resource naturally makes us more interdependent on one another.
As the new, shared digital space evolves, the collective imperative is to develop a common set of expectations to address systemic risks, and to define not only the roles but also the responsibilities of all participants in the cyber ecosystem. The obligations will encompass several key issues – from privacy norms to Internet governance policy – but the collective ability to manage cyber risks in this shared digital environment is fundamental. It forms the crux of cyber resilience.
