On October 6, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, in partnership with the Observer Research Foundation America and Research ICT Africa, hosted a virtual “Roundtable on Implementing Digital Transformation – A Case for Cyber Cooperation.” Participants explored the imperative of inclusive digital transformation and the associated security implications and risks of digitalization in Southern Africa.

Panelists and participants discussed a wide range of aspects related to the intersection of digital transformation and cyber stability, including cyber diplomacy and United Nations negotiations, the difficulty of building trust, and the challenges associated with ensuring that government-enabled digital transformation is inclusive and manages downsides that may come as a result.
