In the past a few years, global cyber security has shown new changes. Some new types of cyber security threats are spreading globally. For example，the global attacks on critical information infrastructure have continued to climb, frequent occurrences of cyber-attacks using IoT devices, ransomware virus presents explosive growth and the security harm caused by e-mail is becoming more and more serious.
In order to resolve these global cyber security threats, many countries have seriously set long-term goals for network security governance, planned and implemented strategic measures, and strengthened the reserve of emerging technologies and talents. According to statistics, the annual investment of governments and companies in the field of cyber-attack threat response has grown to 445 billion US dollars.
There are also multiple forms of dialogue and cooperation between the state and international organizations. They are committed to the construction and development of global cyber security.
Recently, The Global Cyber Security Center led by the 48th Davos World Economic Forum (WEF) was formally established on January 23, 2018. The center will be established in Geneva and is scheduled to officially begin operations in March 2018. This new center aims to increase the flexibility of the network while establishing a set of independent best practice libraries and will provide guidance on different attack scenarios. The center will also help the “developed networks” region to develop new strategies to protect various critical infrastructures.
It is still unknown whether the Global Cyber Security Center will achieve much. However, it is undeniable that, with the proliferation of global information security threats, the establishment of a global cyber security center can at least help promote industry transformation, increase market awareness of security, and reduce cyber criminals.
