Strengthening Cyber Resilience Conference
Around the world, more and more countries are harnessing digital transformation to contribute to national sustainable development goals and outcomes. There is increased recognition of the need to integrate cybersecurity considerations into the digital development agenda, to reduce the risks from the misuse of digital technologies and harness the opportunities of thriving, open societies powered by trusted technologies and a free, open, peaceful and secure cyberspace.
Against this backdrop, Chatham House is bringing together key stakeholders, practitioners, experts and decision-makers for a hybrid conference, learning from the experience of the UK’s largest-ever overseas cyber capacity-building project, the Digital Access Programme, implemented in Brazil, Kenya, Indonesia, Nigeria and South Africa.
The conference is a platform for sharing experience and knowledge about how international cybersecurity capacity building can support national sustainable development and cybersecurity outcomes, and the role of international partnerships.

2022 Cyber Stability Conference: Protecting Critical Infrastructure and Services across Sectors (CS22)
In a world that is increasingly digitized and connected, malicious ICT activities against critical infrastructure and critical information infrastructure supporting essential services to the public are rapidly growing in scale and complexity. This worrying trend impacts individuals and societies as a whole and has the potential of threating international peace and security through national or regional destabilization as well as through a direct threat to institutions and individuals.
Protecting critical infrastructure from ICT threats is a complex and multi-layered task where different actors play interdependent and mutually supporting roles. Leveraging the rich international and digital community in Geneva, UNIDIR’s 2022 Cyber Stability Conference will provide a platform for discussion among experts and practitioners of different sectors with a view to extracting key insights that may enable further progress in multilateral discussions and support more efficient policy interventions by national governments for critical infrastructure protection.
