Global Cyber Expertise Magazine – Issue 4 – November 2017

Publish Date: 1 November 2017

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 fourth edition, published in November 2017, again covers a wide range of topics that touch upon key developments on global cyber capacity building as well as regional updates and initiatives across the cyber spectrum. Our cover story comes from the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) with a reflection on the process of developing a Global Agenda for Cyber Capacity Building with the aim to give a political impulse to the importance of cyber capacity building during the Global Conference on Cyberspace 2017 in New Delhi. The Global section further covers the efforts of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) and the significance of the implementation of Critical Information Infrastructure Protection by both the Meridian and the GFCE. From Africa we have the Mauritian perspective on the fight against cybercrime in their National Cybercrime Strategy and the promotion of cyber due diligence in the ECOWAS Cyber Strategy Workshop. From the Americas we have an article that demonstrates how Latin America bridges the technical skills gap as well as an article on the extinct National Computer Security Network of Mexican Universities. Our Asia section includes an overview of UNODC’s work, capabilities and partnerships on countering cybercrime in Southeast Asia and beyond and a review of how Australia’s International Cyber Strategy is complemented by capacity building and creative partnerships.
