Ghana’s Ministry of Communication and Digitilisation and the Cyber Security Authority of Ghana will host the inaugural edition of the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) in partnership with the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise, the World Bank, the CyberPeace Institute, and the World Economic Forum in Ghana.
Scheduled from November 29th to 30th in Accra, Ghana, this year’s conference, themed “Cyber Resilience for Development” aims to enhance the capacity and cooperation of various stakeholders in the field of cyber security and development while it focuses on four pillars, including cyber resilience for development, collaboration to secure the digital ecosystem, cyber capacity building for the stability and security of the digital environment and solutions for safeguarding development from digital risks and threats.
The GC3B is said to use its platform to energize an actionable dialogue, and bridge existing silos among different communities that are working towards common goals but have had few opportunities to come together in search of common solutions.
GC3B will leverage the organizing partners’ collective network to bring together a combination of high-level decision-makers and practitioners from governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society, and academia across sectors and regions to catalyze clear commitments to achieve its aim.
The event will feature high-level speakers, panel discussions, interactive sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities. It will also showcase some of the best practices and initiatives from around the world in cyber capacity building. Over 500 participants are anticipated to be in attendance.
