Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity

WEF Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity 2023
November 13
 – November 15

Prevailing geopolitical uncertainty, a looming economic crisis and rapid advances in transformative technologies such as generative AI have had a significant impact on cybersecurity. This is evidenced in the World Economic Forum report, Global Cybersecurity Outlook 2023, where the vast majority of cyber and business leaders think it “moderately likely” or “very likely” that global geopolitical instability will lead to a far-reaching, catastrophic cyber event in the next two years.

To effectively prepare for and address cyber risks within the multiple transitions the world is going through, organizations need to develop strategies focused on systemic approaches to securing cyberspace. More than ever, sustained multistakeholder collaboration between organizations and society at large is needed to ensure our shared resilience. Cyber leaders and executives at the highest levels also need to co- develop strategic foresight to steer effective decision-making to stay ahead of cyber threats on the horizon.

Against this backdrop, the Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity 2023 will bring together over 150 of the world’s foremost cybersecurity leaders from business, government, international organizations, civil society and academia to foster collaboration on making cyberspace safer and more resilient.
