In 2012 the World Economic Forum and its community of public and private sector organizations launched a multistakeholder project to address systemic global risks arising from the increasing connectivity of people, processes and objects. Since then, cybersecurity has been an integral part of the Forum’s agenda.
The focus of the Global Agenda Council on Cybersecurity will be to strengthen global security in the cyber age by laying the groundwork for the establishment of international norms on cyberwarfare. This work will build on the Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World project, which focused on establishing context and tools for a dialogue on cyber-resilience. The project produced guidelines and best practice principles for chief executive officers and other senior executives. These guidelines have already been adopted by over 100 global organizations.
In 2012-2013, the work of the council focused on three key areas: information sharing, critical infrastructure protection and public policy development. In 2013 -2014, the council worked on assessing the options to increase cyber-resilience and mitigate the economic and strategic impact of cyberattacks. It also created cross-industry risk assessment models. The insights gained from this will be incorporated into the work of the council for the 2014-2016 term.
