FORGING A PATHWAY TO CYBERSECURITY RESILIENCE

Global Cybersecurity Association (GCA) is a not-for-profit cybersecurity association in Zürich, Switzerland. In our Symposium, comprising global thought leaders and chief information security officers (CISOs), we formulate strategies and practical plans to counter cybercrime and to advance cybersecurity resilience. These are presented to the corporate and governmental communities at our conferences, which are live-streamed around the world and hosted in person in Switzerland, a leading global financial center and home to many of the world’s large corporates, international organizations and to the Crypto Valley, the high-growth blockchain & cryptocurrency cluster.

OUR BELIEFS

Cyberattack, driven by criminal minds poses the greatest single threat to individual, corporate and nation state security.

Sharing information on security practices, data protection and data privacy dramatically reduces risk, saves lives , saves business and protects futures. Together we are stronger.

To be properly prepared, we need to be organized to respond to attack vectors and techniques emanating from all parts of the globe.

For cybersecurity, it is necessary to strive to keep match-fit. To be on the constant look-out for new attack vectors, technologies, developments and new defense strategies and plans.

A well-intentioned, organized global network can and will prevail over a villainous network. The success of our corporate and governmental communities depends on this.

ABOUT GLOBAL CYBERSECURITY ASSOCIATION

According to “Cybersecurity Ventures”, Cybersecurity threats are projected to reach a global cost of USD 10.5 trillion by 2025 and are accentuated by many factors. A well-organized and continuously growing criminal fraternity of cyberattackers is underfoot, a dark force always pushing the envelope to bypass current, state-of-the-art, anti-hacking solutions and technology. 

Inadequate internal organization and marshaling of resources by corporate entities and governments attempt to combat cybercrime, oftentimes without success. 

As endemic as cyber terrorism is, silo thinking is equally threatening. Emerging technologies such as 5G, the rapid increase in numbers of devices, a growing user base in emerging economies and crypto wars leave woefully insufficient corporate and nation state budgets to armor up for cybersecurity resilience.

A global shortage of 3.5m cybersecurity employees in 2021 accentuates the dilemma. Cyber-insecurity is further heightened by home office and remote working conditions in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Formed in 2020, Global Cybersecurity Association’s mission is to support the protection and advancement of the corporate and governmental communities in their quest for business resilience, sustainable growth and innovation, in a world threatened by cybercrime.

Through GCA’s Symposium and conferences featuring global thought leaders and CISOs, we provide a global best practice perspective on cybersecurity.
