CyberWeek @LAC4 2022
The Latin America and Caribbean Cyber Competence Centre LAC4, implemented by EU CyberNet, organises a week full of different discussions, training, workshops, and networking on the most important topics that will take place in cooperation with many countries and organizations.
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.

4. Data protection and Cybersecurity policy
5. Challanges of Cyber secutity in the digital sphere
2022 Global Technology Summit
The critical significance of technology policy has manifested itself in multiple forms in this past year. Geopolitical disruptions have confirmed the potential for the weaponization of technology. Disputes over data flows and access are leading to new dialogues on international norm-building. India has demonstrated that a public infrastructure for digital services can promote welfare objectives from financial inclusion to vaccine delivery.
These developments are taking place in the larger global context of supply chain disruptions, semi-conductor shortages and the race to lead on data-related technologies. Against this backdrop, and as India takes the G-20 presidency later this year, the seventh iteration of the Global Technology Summit seeks to explore the present climate in the shapeshifting worlds of international alliances, emerging technologies, and geopolitics.
To discuss these issues and many other questions, join the 7th iteration of the Global Technology Summit, themed Geopolitics of Technology. Carnegie India will convene industry experts, policymakers, scholars, scientists, and other stakeholders from all over the world to take an in-depth look at the changing nature of technology and geopolitics.

The Status of Cybersecurity Capacity in the South African Public Sector
The goal of this webinar is to discuss the state of cybersecurity skills in the South African public sector. The CIO of MICTSETA Mr. Moloti Nkune will lead the conversation by providing a bird's-eye view of the state of cybersecurity professionals in the South African public sector.
Despite numerous cybersecurity academies created by corporate South Africa and universities, the availability of professionals does not match the frequency and intensity of cyberattacks, as well as the complexity of emerging threats and risks. It is predicted that to cope with the magnitude of cyberthreats in both public and private sector, South Africa needs 4 million skilled cybersecurity professionals. Expert panellists will provide insights into how we can bolster our cybersecurity capacity and cyber deterrence to achieve an international level of cyber resilience to protect national critical information infrastructure assets.
