GC3B 2025

The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) are thrilled to officially announce that the second edition of the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) is scheduled to convene in Geneva, Switzerland on the 14 – 15 May 2025. The conference will take place at the International Conference Center Geneva (CICG).

The second iteration of the GC3B will build on the successes of its inaugural edition, which took place in November 2023 in Ghana. Responding to the need for a high-level platform that elevates discussions on cyber capacity building onto the global governance agenda, the GC3B is the first event to convene policymakers and leading experts from across the world to catalyze action for cyber resilient development. The GC3B 2025 will also build on the process of the Accra Call for Cyber Resilient Development, which is a milestone document presented at the first conference. The 2025 edition of the conference will further aid the coordination of global cyber capacity building efforts, helping unlock financial resources and improve international cooperation.

Why cyber capacity building? To ensure a free, open, and secure digital world, every country should have the resources, knowledge, and skills they need to invest in their digital future. Nations should work together and support each other with these capabilities, so that no country is left behind in their digital evolution. After all, a chain is only as strong a s the weakest link.
