About the event
High-Level Policy Session 3 : Building confidence and security in the use of ICTs
"In this digital age, trust is everything. Cybersecurity is crucial to ensuring universal, trustworthy, and equitable access to connectivity. While the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) enables better management and increased productivity, the use of digital systems also generates risks. In fact, cyberthreats and cyberattacks give rise to ever-growing security challenges for both the public and private sectors in all countries. Enhancing cybersecurity and protecting critical information infrastructures are essential to every nation's social and economic development. Cybersecurity-related incidents can compromise the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information transiting on networks and disrupt the operations and functioning of critical infrastructure, digital and physical. They can also compromise the security of people and whole countries."
During this high-level policy session EDDS will discuss the need for a security standard for the EdTech sector as education technologies increasingly play a central role in all educational processes.
