UK Joins Global Initiative For Cyber Resilience

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

William J. Hague, secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom, has signed the World Economic Forum’s Partnering for Cyber Resilience initiative. In signing the initiative, the United Kingdom joins over 70 companies and government bodies across 15 sectors and 25 countries.

Partnering for Cyber Resilience aims to raise awareness and understanding of cyber issues among leaders across all industries and policy domains, and to encourage organizations to practice good “cyber hygiene” – simple steps which can immediately reduce the risks to their organizations and customers.

The initiative creates an environment for companies and governments to come together in a neutral space to tackle issues of common concern, such as protecting national infrastructure or individuals’ personal information across shared networks or physical borders.
