The Global Cyber Expertise Magazine is a bi-annual magazine on global cyber policy developments and capacity building projects. The Magazine is jointly published by the African Union, the European Union, the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise and the Organization of American States.
This first issue, published in June 2016, gives an overview of the current state of play around the world. Our cover story on Africa shows both the enormous economic potential of cyber and the risks cyber threats pose to this growth agenda (page 5). A similar message comes back in the articles about Latin America and the Caribbean with a call to action for states to invest in cybersecurity strategies and structures (page 13 and 16). The articles on Europe provide an overview of the latest EU policy instruments in cyber capacity building and international cyber policies (page 23 and 26). In his contribution, a Malaysian Cybersecurity Official calls for a more regional approach to cyber capacity building in Asia (page 19). This first issue also demonstrates some inspiring experiences in cyber capacity building: workshops in Africa (page 8 and 10), best practices on Responsible Disclosure (page 33) and an interview with the director of the new CyberGreen initiative (page 21).
