EWI’s Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit brought together leaders of governments, businesses and civil society from around the world to determine new measures to ensure the security of the world’s digital infrastructure. 

Electronic attacks around the world have compromised confidential information, crippled official web sites and have exposed the vulnerability of financial data. They have heightened fears that criminals or terrorists could use cyberspace to paralyze communications infrastructure, international financial systems or critical government services.

Despite the severity of these threats, the international community has not come to agreement on how best to deal with them. EWI’s Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit began to fill this gap, bringing together leaders from the public and private sectors to reframe cybersecurity concerns and to devise collective strategies to address them.
