About the Global Cybersecurity Day

Global Cybersecurity Day is an initiative of Boston Global Forum, meant to inspire the shared responsibility of the world’s citizens to protect the Internet’s safety and transparency. As part of this initiative, BGF also calls upon citizens of goodwill everywhere — from ordinary people to leaders — to follow BGF’s Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security (ECCC).

It will be held at 12:00 noon (local time) on December 12 annually in Tokyo, Bonn, Nha Trang, and Boston. The event also encourages open dialogue, from many perspectives, about cybersecurity and will also honor individuals, organizations, and initiatives that have made the greatest contributions to a safe cyberspace.

About Boston Global Forum

Boston Global Forum ( BostonGlobalForum.org ) was founded nearly three years ago by former Democratic presidential candidate and Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, who is now a Distinguished Professor at Harvard University; Prof. John Quelch, the Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School; Prof. Thomas Patterson, the Bradlee Professor of Government and the Press at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of the Boston Global Forum, and the Founder and Chairman of VietNamNet Media Company and VietNet, the first Internet Service Provider in Vietnam.

Boston Global Forum brings together thought leaders to address problems that affect the world and to inspire creative and practical global collaboration to fix them. Just one example of its work is BGF’s prominent role in improving working conditions at Asia’s manufacturing centers as part of its 2013 initiatives.

BGF has been hosting international meetings in 2015 aimed at building an Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security (ECCC) to promote a healthy cyber environment.
