Inaugural Pacific Cyber Capacity Building and Coordination Conference To Kick Off in October
The Oceania Cyber Security Centre and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise have announced they are partnering together to launch a new global forum aimed at addressing cyber security in the Pacific region.
The inaugural Pacific Cyber Capacity Building and Coordination Conference – also known as P4C, will take place in Nadi, Fiji, from 2 to 4 October.
P4C will see representatives from government and industry joining forces to boost cyber security capacity building. Australia, the US, New Zealand, and the UK are assisting with funding for the event through the Partners in the Blue Pacific coordination mechanism.
The conference will include workshops on cyber governance with a focus on “Pacific perspectives” and “regional objectives”.
“As the methods used to lift cyber security and resilience have evolved, the Pacific has started to transition to a new phase of CCB that is evidence-based and informed by the region’s unique context and needs,” said Cameron Boardman, director of the Oceania Cyber Security Centre.
