New wave of globalization
“While we welcome the opportunities arising from this transformation, cyber criminals welcome them, too.
“I’m convinced that organizations that hope to fend off these new threats on their own will pay a high price.
“Only through global cooperation can we hope to win the day. That’s why the Forum has chosen to support the Paris Call.”
Implementing Paris Call
The Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity will work with its network of partners and co-signatories to ensure the implementation and operationalization of the principles of the Paris Call.
Also, it will act to bolster current efforts that support these principles. Moreover, it will convene all necessary stakeholders where new efforts are needed to achieve the shared goals.
Most noteworthy, the Forum is the only international organization that signed up.
Therefore, it serves an important role. Importantly, it is a neutral platform for the development and broader adoption of the principles that guide global cooperation.
