World Economic Forum launches ‘Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World: Principles and Guidelines’

During last week’s World Economic Forum meeting in Davos the organization launched ‘Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World: Principles and Guidelines,’ which provides a common set of shared principles for cyber security and resilience.

The initiative was supported by Deloitte, with member firms acting as project advisers, and aims to provide global organizations with a common standard for cyber security and resilience.

“Cyber security is an issue that no one organization can resolve by itself,” said Alan Marcus, Senior Director, Head of IT and Telecom Industries for the World Economic Forum USA. “A multi stakeholder approach must be taken. As such, we developed these principles, which are aimed at all organizations, regardless of industry, sector, jurisdiction, geography, or even level of expertise. We thank Deloitte member firms for their advisory role in the project.”
