SEC.1 : Tackling cyberthreats: towards effective global partnerships
Tuesday, 06 October 2009, 11:00 - 12:30, Room B

No country or operator acting alone can ensure its own cybersecurity; global partnerships are necessary and unavoidable. The day-to-day functioning of the global economy, basic services, health programs and individual activities rely on efficient and fully operational Information and Communication Technologies.
KEY QUESTIONS: - How vulnerable is the system that is at the base of every service, transaction, communication and exchange required for the steady functioning of the global economy and individual well-being? - Is there a real risk? From who? What? What are the most vulnerable targets? - Did we learn from Estonia? - How are international multilateral cooperative mechanisms evolving? - What gaps still need to be filled?
