Equally, the increasing ubiquity of the Internet has been accompanied by cybercrime, spam and breaches of privacy.

This session will assess the various positions about how global Internet governance should evolve.
  12. 12. Keynote: Creating a Global Cyber Immune System Mr. Alan Marcus ICT Director - World Economic Forum Mr. Howard Schmidt Partner - Schmidt Ridge Cyber Just as people, communities, governments and nations have collaborated globally to share knowledge and practices that have eliminated or reduced public health risks, information about cyber risks, threats and vulnerabilities need to be shared globally to encourage all IT stakeaholders to adopt good practices. This session examines how greater openness, transparency and collaboration can reduce cyber threats, highlighting best practices as well as sound policies and regulations -when needed- that ensure the Internet remains healthy and trustworthy. Panelists will also address how cyber security will need to become like the human immune system—isolating and attacking intruders even before knowing their identity or source.

Without global cooperation on finance, security, trade, the environment and poverty reduction, the risks of division, strife and war will remain dangerously real. Waiting for better times will simply not suffice. Collectively, we must be bolder to cope with growing risks. ICT goods and services underpin modern economic activity and development.
