On July 20, EWI Senior Vice President Bruce McConnell delivered a keynote address at the Open Group Trusted Technology Forum in Baltimore, Maryland.

At the event, McConnell spoke about EWI's Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Initiative and surveyed the challenges and opportunities concerning sovereignty and security on the Internet. He noted that cyber issues should be a critical area of U.S.-China cooperation, given that "Cyberspace is the source of great economic and social benefits, and a wonderful incubator of collaboration and innovation." McConnell concluded his remarks by emphasizing that "Cyberspace is a critical area of human endeavor. It underpins the global economy... Therefore, all of us here today should take responsibility for working to improve the safety and stability of cyberspace, to make it an area of cooperation, not a source of friction."
