India to host Global Conference on Cyber Space for first time ever
17 November 2017 Current Affairs: In present time cybersecurity is a big issue globally. India is also moving to a digital era. Hence against this backdrop, focusing on a Secure and Inclusive Cyberspace for Sustainable Development, India will host the Global Conference on Cyber Space (GCCS).

The Curtain Raiser events will be held from 20th November.

It is the fifth edition of GCCS wherein international leaders, policymakers, industry experts, think tanks and cyber experts will gather to deliberate on issues and challenges for optimally using cyberspace. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the mega event.

The main goal is to promote the importance of inclusiveness and human rights in global cyber policy, to defend the status quo of an open, interoperable and unregimented cyberspace, to create political commitment for capacity building initiatives to address the digital divide and assist countries, and to develop security solutions in a balanced fashion that duly acknowledge the importance of the private sector and technical community.

Overall 33 ministers from various nations dealing with the subject matter of cyberspace have already confirmed. More than 7000 people have already registered on the website and among them, only 2500 will get their invites to the conference.
