The World Economic Forum's Centre for Cybersecurity is an independent and impartial global platform committed to fostering international dialogue and collaboration between the global cybersecurity community across the public and private spheres. The centre aims to bridge the gap between cybersecurity experts and decision-makers at the highest levels and reinforce the importance of cybersecurity as a key strategic priority.

The initiative was launched as a response to the unprecedented systemic increase of security risks and threats brought about by advances in technology and increased global interconnectivity.

The Centre brings together over a hundred partners from key players on the global technological field, such as Cisco, Microsoft or Amazon Web Services, as well as a network of representatives from governments and public institutions, international organisations, academia and civil society organisations in one community.

The Community has 3 key priorities, around which work activities evolve, including: 

  • Building Cyber Resilience: enhancing cyber resilience by developing and scaling forward-looking solutions and promoting effective practices across digital ecosystems.
  • Strengthening Global Cooperation: increasing global cooperation between public and private stakeholders by fostering a collective response to cybercrime, and jointly addressing key security challenges.
  • Understanding Future Networks and Technology: identifying future cybersecurity challenges and opportunities related to Industry 4.0 technologies and promote trustworthy and ethical technological solutions.
