About Keynote Speech:

Collaborative Pathways to Securing the Cyber Ecosystem

The nature of cyberspace as fast-changing digital globally connected ecosystem presents key global challenges including critical economic and social functions are digitally reliant, the ability to conduct hidden attacks of increasingly disruptive scale; and insecure systems that create risks to all in the ecosystem. The lecture will address possibilities for collaboration to address these challenges, in particular – the need for global norms to help protect vulnerable social functions; the need to quickly identify transgressions against norms both to ensure accountability and manage escalation to avoid a cyber silent spring; and the need to establish measurement of cyber ecosystem health to ensure nations, companies and individuals have incentives to keep the system clean.




About Panel Discussion:
Globally accepted norms in the fractured cyberspace
The panel discussion will focus on the belief that cyberspace is increasingly becoming fractured, with issues such as cyber sovereignty and competing models of internet governance, possibly leading to a Balkanization of the internet. What kind of norms are needed? How they can develop? Above all, how can we ensure these norms are created and accepted at a global scale?
