Coming Next: European Cyber Agora 2024 

European Cyber Agora Community Spotlight

Core cybersecurity capabilities serve as the bedrock upon which our connected world thrives. From network operations, to policy tools, operational organisations, and open-source code, these core capabilities are critical to the online experience people are accustomed to. Despite their critical work, there are limited funding mechanisms available to nonprofit organisations sustaining many of these capabilities, hindering their ability to operate and posing risks to the Internet’s availability and security. The Common Good Cyber initiative was launched in Washington, D.C. in February 2024 and intends to identify and implement sustainable models for supporting groups, organisations, and individuals involved in critical cybersecurity functions for the broader Internet community. The session will introduce the initiative and the roadmap for its implementation.

In embracing the pledge of multi-stakeholderism, we extend a hand to ensure collective contribution. Cyber is no longer an up and coming field, it is an establishing field which impacts all the other fields. The decision to support it is about policy choices. We need to get our messaging right, it is essential for the development funds to encompass cyber realms.
