With the digitisation of society and industry, cybersecurity is an essential precondition in this new reality. Ensuring that there is common ground and baseline principles in the sphere of cybersecurity is critical for secure, safe progress that will allow society and industry to grow. The ‘Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace’ was a significant step forward in bringing together governments, international organisations, civil society organisations and the private sector in recognising nine core cybersecurity principles.
With the Paris Peace Forum taking place on the 12th–13th November 2019, the French Government will be launching the second phase of the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace. DIGITALEUROPE and its members – signatories to the Paris Call – reaffirm their commitment to these principles and believe that they should evolve and go beyond, looking to ensure cybersecurity principles are robust and adaptable to modern cyber threats.
This event will discuss the continued importance of the Paris Call’s nine principles and how the second phase of the Paris Call can go further. It will also explore how industry can ensure that they are implemented alongside the critical role of national governments in application of the principles.
