FP Virtual Dialogue: Securing Our Digital Future

September 23, 2021

A case for cooperation in cybersecurity

FP Analytics, in partnership with Microsoft, will unveil a groundbreaking special report on the economic, social, and geopolitical implications of escalating cybersecurity threats and the urgent need for international collaboration to combat them. The special report, Securing Our Digital Future, explores the dangers posed by rising cyber threats from both state and non-state actors—and the cost of inaction.

Against the backdrop of the 76th UN General Assembly and the proliferation of cyber attacks globally, this timely conversation will seek to elevate proactive solutions to this challenge. Speakers will share their perspectives on how a multinational consensus for norms and rules around cybersecurity could safeguard the digital ecosystem. As recent, high-profile attacks have shown, malicious actors are relentlessly seeking out weaknesses in countries’ and companies’ cyber defenses—and patchwork regulations are creating chinks in the armor. According to FP Analytics’ report, a united front to defend critical infrastructure, businesses, and government assets will be vital for safeguarding the digital environment for economic growth, national security, and citizens’ privacy.

Our in-depth conversation, featuring international thought leaders, policy experts, and private sector executives, will offer key insights from the report, explore the current state of play of multinational and regional efforts, and outline ways to facilitate greater multi-stakeholder collaboration in cyberspace.
