Global Future Council on Cybersecurity

Council mission and objectives

Cybersecurity and building trust are fundamental to strengthening collective resilience in the shared global digital infrastructure, on which the multistakeholder ecosystem relies. Cybersecurity, as one of the world’s most strategically important issues, has in recent years consistently been assessed as one of the top systemic risks facing business and government leadership by the World Economic Forum. The COVID-19 crisis has rapidly accelerated collective dependency on digital infrastructure while, at the same time, systemically altering the global cybersecurity landscape. The Global Future Council on Cybersecurity will focus on understanding and making recommendations on addressing the post-pandemic cybersecurity challenges.
