Enhancing cyber resilience is one of the principal challenges facing public and private institutions alike. There is a growing consensus that major cyber attacks are now a question of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’. The threats are multiple – from state-associated actors, to terrorists, to criminal networks. This session will focus on developing a better understanding of existing and potential cyber vulnerabilities and systemic risks, and ways to improve preparedness and resilience.
- As cyber attacks continue to evolve in scale and complexity, how prepared are governments and companies for the current cyber threat landscape?
- In what ways is pressure on governments to act forcefully on national security issues shaping the cyber policy landscape?
- How can state and non-state actors work collaboratively on cyber resilience, given the role of the private sector in critical national infrastructure?
- To tackle cyber crime, how can collaboration on intelligence, methodology and resources between states and businesses be improved?
- What progress is being made in terms of international cooperation and harmonization of regulatory and legal frameworks?
- What are the risks of cyber attacks leading to significant escalation in other areas?
