We depend upon Digital. A new view of the Digital Age and Digital World is forming. The twenty first century Society becomes more complex and connected. We share the sense that Digital is an integral foundation of the global society. We are part of the most complex and sophisticated system in history. Huge improvements in connectivity and access to knowledge and the considerable benefits associated with the digitization of human activities are compounded with major challenges to privacy, digital literacy and employment. Global tectonic shifts in the geography of wealth creation are underway. With the great promises of Cyber come the great challenges of disruption and transformation. As governments, businesses and citizens, how can we grasp the implications of those transformations?

The Global Forum 2014 will provide much needed strategic direction and tactical guidance for those involved in dealing with the challenges of the Digital Age.
