GCA is operational...now what?

By Adnan Baykal

If you recall from our previous announcements, Global Cyber Alliance is founded on the principle that it would be a catalyst to bring communities of interest and affiliations together in an environment that sparks innovation with concretemeasurable achievements. We are eager to band together organizations and initiatives to effectuate positive, meaningful and long lasting change.  We are currently working with the global experts, thought leaders, and strategists, as well as public and private organizations, to identify the RISK(s) GCA will go after to eliminate.

There are a number of items on the table such as Phishing, DDoS, Old/Unpatched Software, and Lack of End User Awareness, as well as risks around Authentication. These are Risks that we are all dealing with and some of them already have proven solutions, but they require more global adaptation. We are analyzing these issues and discussing different solutions GCA can implement to make a measurable impact. It is important to note that we don’t want to implement or push for a solution for which we don’t have a clearly defined method of measurement for success. Therefore, along with solutions, we are discussing how GCA can measure its impact.

GCA is a community effort, and we welcome everyone’s opinions. So if you feel there is a Risk GCA should tackle, please drop up us a note. If you think there may be a way to implement a solution to address that Risk, please include that in your note as well. Nothing is off the table, and anything is possible. Please keep the ideas flowing, and send them to us at [email protected].
