The maiden edition of the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) is scheduled to take off in Accra, Ghana on the 29th and 30th of November 2023.

The GC3B is co-organised by the Global Forum of Cyber Expertise (GFCE), World Bank, CyberPeace Institute, and the World Economic Forum and will be hosted by Ghana’s Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation (MoCD) through the Cyber Security Authority (CSA).

Focusing on the theme; “Cyber Resilience for Development”, the first edition of the GC3B seeks to secure and improve decision-makers’ awareness of cyber capacity building, strengthen global coordination efforts, and widen the pool of resources available. The sessions at the 2023 GC3B will accordingly be on four pillars: Making International Development Cyber Resilient, Collaborating to Secure the Digital Ecosystem, Cyber Capacity Building for the Stability and Security of the Digital Environment, and Operationalizing Solutions.

The GC3B 2023 will bring together over 1,200 decision-makers, practitioners, and experts to catalyze global action to elevate and mainstream cyber resilience and capacity building in the international development agenda and in national development plans and investments as key enablers of sustainable development, inclusive economic growth, and social prosperity for all.

It is anticipated that at the end of the event, there will be an effective, sustainable, and inclusive stewardship of international cooperation for cyber-resilient development in the era of digital interdependence.

Among many others, it is expected that the Conference will trigger a high-level, demand-driven, Global Cyber Capacity Building Agenda for cyber-resilient international development, and demand-driven cyber resilience for development through the mobilization of different sources of financing from international development, the private sector, and philanthropy.
