Cyber Resilience for Development

The digital world touches every aspect of our lives. It enables us to connect, work, learn and travel, and plays an important role in safeguarding life essentials such as food, water, and healthcare. These huge opportunities also come with digital risks that we need to be aware of. All of us. Governments. Businesses. Academia. Society at large. To ensure a free, open, and secure digital world, every country should have the resources, knowledge, and skills they need to invest in their digital future. Nations should work together and support each other with these capabilities, so that no country is left behind in their digital evolution. After all, a chain is only as strong as the weakest link.  

Aim: The inaugural Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) is organized to raise awareness of the importance that every nation has the expertise to invest in their digital future, and to encourage countries to work together to ensure a free, open, and secure digital world.

When: 29-30 November

Where: Kempinski Hotel Gold City, Accra, Ghana

The GC3B brings together high-level leaders and experts from the global cyber and development communities under the common theme “cyber resilience for development“. Attending the conference offers them the opportunity to work on common solutions and address the international need to increase resources for cyber capacity building, which is a key enabler for sustainable development, economic growth, and social progress.

As the highlight of the #GC3B23, participants will witness the announcement of the Accra Call: a global action framework that supports countries in strengthening their cyber resilience.

Co-organized by the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise, the CyberPeace Institute, the World Bank, and the World Economic Forum, and hosted by the Ministry of Digitalisation and Communications of Ghana.
