" To me, one of the best steps of the last 18 months or so has been the creation of the CyberPeace Institute. Microsoft is one of the institutions that helped stand it up. I thought it was important that it be based in Geneva, and I'm glad that it is because I think it then connects with the ICRC, with the UN, and with the other institutions that are there. Ultimately, I do think that the preservation of a cyber peace in any real form will require that we recognize that we live in a world that sort of is between conventional peace and conventional war. We have this constant array of attacks. And I think it will require more collective defense, you know, by countries, not just to focus on governments, governance and rules, but also on deterrence.”
Brad SmithPresident, Microsoft
" It is to address such questions and focus on future threats in cyberspace that the CyberPeace Institute has been created with four core objectives that are both incredibly timely and deeply relevant as to assist vulnerable populations, to analyze attacks and reveal their impacts on human lives, to advance responsible behaviour, to tell the powerful stories of those who have no voice, and to mobilize supports and volunteers around the world to campaign for peace in cyberspace.”
Nathalie FontanetGeneva State Councillor

The CCIG is pleased to support this NGO in its work for digital security and sovereignty.

Vincent SubiliaCEO, Geneva Chamber of Commerce (CCIG)
“We are a grateful recipient of the Cyber 4 Healthcare service that helped us to evaluate and structure our cybersecurity posture. Thank you warmly from all of us. ”
Because of the support of the CyberPeace Institute we’ve actually been saved from a breach that could have been disruptive. Thank you to the Institute's team for helping healthcare start ups like OneHealth be safer and secure on the internet. So now, we can focus on taking care of people in a very timely manner and safely as well.” (Feb 2021)
