Fortinet at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity

Fortinet’s mission is to secure people, devices, and data everywhere. The company’s role as a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity and contributions to the Cybercrime Atlas, a joint initiative launched by the organization’s Partnership Against Cybercrime project, are examples of the many ways the company shows up as a member of a larger cybersecurity ecosystem.

Continuing these important discussions, Fortinet will contribute its expertise to sessions at the upcoming Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity, including:

  • TitleCyber Resilient Ecosystems: The Missing Link
  • Contributor: Derek Manky, Chief Security Strategist and Global Vice President Threat Intelligence, Fortinet
  • When: Wednesday, Nov. 15
  • Overview: In an increasingly technological and interconnected business landscape, cyberattacks can spread contagiously across organizations and their supply chains, with cascading effects on the public sector and society. Collaboration among stakeholders is therefore crucial to ensure a holistic approach to addressing global, systemic cyber risks. How can cyber and business leaders put in place strong foundations to ensure their entire organizational ecosystem is cyber resilient?

 More about the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity

Prevailing geopolitical uncertainty, a looming economic crisis and rapid advances in transformative technologies such as generative AI have significantly impacted cybersecurity. This is evidenced in the World Economic Forum report, Global Cybersecurity Outlook 2023, in which most cyber and business leaders think it is “moderately likely” or “very likely” that global geopolitical instability will lead to a far-reaching, catastrophic cyber event in the next two years.

To effectively prepare for and address cyber risks within the multiple transitions the world is going through, organizations need to develop strategies focused on systemic approaches to securing cyberspace. More than ever, sustained multistakeholder collaboration among organizations and society at large is required to ensure our shared resilience. Cyber leaders and executives at the highest levels also need to co-develop strategic foresight to steer effective decision-making to stay ahead of cyberthreats on the horizon. Against this backdrop, the meeting will feature interactive discussions, workshops, and hubs to foster debate, enable insight-sharing, and spur action.
