GFCE Annual Meeting towards strengthening global cyber capacities
The Annual Meeting of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) took place in Washington D.C., 1-2 June 2016. The GFCE is a global platform that gathers over 50 countries, international organisations and companies, aiming to strengthen cyber capacities through joint initiatives by its members and other partners. The Annual Meeting was an opportunity to present current initiatives (such as the study on cybersecurity preparedness in 32 countries in the LAC region, the report on trends and developments on cybersecurity and cybercrime in Africa, and the evaluation of CSIRT maturity in West Africa), best practices by partner organisations (such as the study on competence building trends in OECD countries, and the overview of Global Action on Cybercrime supporting countries in implementation of the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime) and new initiatives (such as the CyberGreen initiative to help CERTs remedy risks). The new Advisory Board of the GFCE was installed, with 10 representatives from civil society, academia and tech community (video).
