Promoting global collaboration to address systemic cybersecurity challenges and improve digital trust to safeguard innovation and prosperity, protecting institutions, businesses, and individuals.
Digital connectivity plays a crucial role in enabling innovation and prosperity around the world but increasingly cyberthreats present a major obstacle to society’s continued path to progress. From data breaches and identity theft to the disruption of operations and critical infrastructure, the World Economic Forum Global Risks Report 2019 ranks cyberattacks among the top five global risks. At the same time, cybercriminals take advantage of a borderless playing field to build their criminal enterprises and launch targeted attacks, with limited risk and high return.
The Centre for Cybersecurity was established by the World Economic Forum to shape the future of cybersecurity and digital trust. The Centre is leading the global response to address systemic cybersecurity challenges and improve digital trust, to defend innovation and protect institutions, businesses, and individuals. We bring together policy-makers and operational leaders from the highest levels around the world through ongoing collaborative action and partnership across our network comprising business, government, civil society, academic leaders and top cyber experts.
The Centre activities focus on addressing three main challenges:
To increase global cooperation between the public and private sectors in addressing key challenges to security and trust in the digital landscape
To identify cybersecurity threats and opportunities posed by new technologies and accelerate solutions and incentives
To coordinate and promote initiatives to address the global deficit in professional skills, effective leadership and adequate capabilities
