The Internet and ICTs have enabled interconnection between countries that was not possible before. Countries cannot easily close their borders to incoming cyber threats and cannot either contain those coming from within.
Attempts to solve these challenges at national or regional levels are important, but they are undermined. Cybersecurity is as global and far-reaching as the Internet.
Therefore solutions need to be harmonized across all borders.
This necessarily entails international cooperation, not only at government level, but also with industry, nongovernmental and international organizations.
Cybersecurity concerns all types of measures.
For this reason, the GCA seeks to harness the power of multi-stakeholder collaboration in order to arrive at global strategies to enhance cybersecurity.
