Unpacking the Global Conference on CyberSpace 2017 - Charting a forward course

Description:

The fifth iteration of the Global Conference on CyberSpace, the GCCS 2017 took place on November 23 and 24 in New Delhi, India. As perhaps the largest global conference on cybersecurity, it attracted varied participation across stakeholder groups. However, while there tends to be significant momentum leading up to an event like the GCCS, this often dissipates after the event, and potential learnings, synergies and opportunities for impact might be lost. 

This pre-event hopes to engage persons who are interested in the London process and the themes of GCCS 2017, and through this capture the substantive outcomes of the Conference by unpacking the GCCS 2017 Chair's Statement. Following this, we hope to provide space for collaborative efforts to further the goals of the GCCS 2017.
