Paris Peace Forum 2021
Our leadership team will participate in the 4th edition of the Paris Peace Forum.
The Paris Peace Forum continues to demonstrate that in an increasingly complex international environment it is still possible to advance governance solutions, scale-up projects and launch new initiatives. Since its creation, the Forum has supported and accompanied numerous projects that respond to the cross-border challenges of our time. This year, Space for Solutions, in a hybrid format, will host 80 projects tackling the issues at the heart of the 4th edition.
The CyberPeace Institute’s ‘Cyber Incident Tracer (CIT #HEALTH)’ project has been selected by the Paris Peace Forum in the category “Digital world: strengthening cybersecurity for all”.
The Selection Committee evaluated all applications and made its choice based on the quality of the projects as well as a geographical balance.
In a recent report, the CyberPeace Institute identified a significant knowledge gap between global cyber incidents and their impact on people and society. Based on this analysis, the Institute is developing a public platform that serves as a repository of information on cyberattacks which disrupt the delivery of healthcare. The goal is to provide information about the impact of these attacks on patients, healthcare professionals and facilities. Through the tracing of healthcare cyberattacks across the globe, the Cyber Incident Tracer (CIT #HEALTH) seeks to bring greater visibility to the scale of the problem and how such attacks really impact people and the provision of care. This aim is driven by the ambition to promote positive change towards human security, dignity, and equity in cyberspace.
The vision for the CIT is to develop the platform in cooperation with global partners across sectors and will be part of a larger platform that provides a holistic view of the impact that cyber incidents have on people, highlights the available instruments to protect/empower them and exposes the gaps that allow these incidents to exist.
