The EastWest Institute is hosting its annual Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Progress Roundtable, taking place at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in Palo Alto, California, on September 6-7, 2017.

This roundtable is the annual strategic review of EWI's cyberspace program. Approximately 40 leaders of EWI's cyber cooperation breakthrough groups and other key stakeholders will meet in person to present the groups' recent work, discuss progress made so far and examine next steps to refine our collective undertaking to stimulate responsible global action in cyberspace.

The roundtable will review ongoing work on addressing security and safety in IoT-connected cities, promoting norms of responsible behavior in cyberspace, increasing access to more secure ICT products and services, and understanding and insuring systemic cyber risk. The event will also include an in-depth workshop on balancing encryption and lawful access to data. Additionally, updates will be presented on EWI's continued support of the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace, which is seeking to develop proposals for norms and policies to enhance international security and guide responsible state and non-state behavior in cyberspace.

The Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Progress Roundtable is organized with support from, among others, Microsoft, Huawei Technologies, Unisys, Sonus Networks, Palo Alto Networks, Qihoo 360, NXP Semiconductors, CenturyLink, VEON, JPMorgan Chase, Marsh & McLennan, The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
