Global Cybersecurity Collaboration Launched

14 ecosystems from all over the world have agreed plans to launch a new global cybersecurity organisation.

During a cybersecurity forum in Poland, 14 ecosystems from all over the world have agreed plans to launch a new global cybersecurity organisation. 

At the CyberSec European Cybersecurity Forum in Krakow, it was announced that the Global Ecosystem of Ecosystems Platform in Innovation and Cybersecurity (Global Epic) will look to create and adopt world-changing solutions to high-impact cybersecurity challenges by working together, setting global standards by performing research and trend analyses.

One of the founding ecosystems is the UK’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), which will help to deliver on 10 value-generating initiatives and activities, including the creation of development programmes to enhance skillsets and individual knowledge.

Global Epic has set a target of 50 cybersecurity ecosystem members by October 2020. Godfrey Gaston, director of CSIT, said: “The formal launch of Global Epic represents an escalation of global cyber security innovation ecosystem collaboration to tackle head-on the challenges citizens, businesses and governments face in supporting the shift to an interconnected digital economy.

“The continued cyber-attacks show there are problems we are not solving, but ecosystems are part of the answer because we all have different areas of specialist knowledge, and if we work together we can make a real difference. It is a win/win for organisations and regions involved, and we at CSIT are proud to be a founding keystone organisation.”
