Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B)
The digital age presents unparalleled opportunities for economic growth, and human and social development. An open and secure cyberspace allows every nation to fully reap the benefits of ICT. However, while capitalizing on the vast potential cyberspace offers, it is crucial that all countries address the inherent digital risks, making sure that no nation is left behind in their digital evolution.
Cyber capacity building, the national and international, often multistakeholder, efforts to advance resilient and thriving digital economies, is of key importance to successfully support the global digital transformation. Through the provision of resources, expertise, and skills all countries should be enabled to invest in their digital landscape and to build a solid foundation to ensure a prosperous digital future for all.
To catalyze global action for cyber resilient development, the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) is scheduled for 29-30 November in Ghana. GC3B is a first of its kind gathering of leaders, high-level decision makers and experts from all nations, where awareness on cyber capacity building is secured and improved, global coordination of efforts is strengthened, and the pool of available resources is widened. The conference constitutes the first endeavor to bring together the cyber security, cyber capacity building and development communities. The conference will focus on “Cyber Resilience for Development” as a central theme.
Co-organized by the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise, The Cyber Peace Institute, the World Bank, and the World Economic Forum, GC3B is hosted by the Ministry of Digitalisation and Communications of Ghana.
