  • In collaboration with leading ICT companies and institutions, IMPACT will conduct high-level briefings for the benefit of representatives of ITU Member States. Many of IMPACT’s key partners (such as Kaspersky Labs, Symantec Corporation and others) have committed to make available their respective CTOs, Chief Research Officers and other experts in a unique high-level IMPACT programme to keep governments abreast of present and future cyber-threats. This intelligence is backed literally by billions of dollars annually in R&D – no one is better able to provide a solid understanding of technological trends or ‘predict’ upcoming threats. ITU will contribute its experience in capacity-building and developing frameworks for policy response to this programme. Such high-level, cross-industry briefings are unprecedented and will give ITU Member States invaluable exposure and privileged private sector insight about the latest trends, potential threats and emerging technologies. The expectation is that these sessions will evolve into an invaluable forum where leading private sector companies share constructive ideas and best practices with governments.
  • IMPACT will also provide world-class cyber-training throughout 2009 in the form of specialised seminars, workshops etc. To deliver these, IMPACT is collaborating with ITU and other globally-renowned partners, including the SANS Institute, Honeynet Project and others. This training will support ITU’s objective of capacity building as outlined by GCA work area four.
  • ITU Member States will benefit from the comprehensive training facilities at IMPACT’s Global HQ in Cyberjaya. These include specialised training rooms, an auditorium, always-on (24x7x365) Security Operations Centre, labs, accommodation facilities for visiting trainers and experts, a fully-equipped data centre and other modern facilities needed to support high-tech, specialised training programs. IMPACT’s Centre for Training & Skills Development will play a key role in realising ITU GCA’s goal of capacity-building among Member States.
