About CFF Cyber Peace Forum

CFF Cyber Peace Forum is a unique gathering of key stakeholders and practitioners towards the establishment of the key goals for Cyber Peace

About this Event

What are our expectations of peace in cyberspace, can we extrapolate our desire for peace, law and order and tranquility in the physical environment to that in cyberspace? We cannot really expect to answer these questions unless we clearly define our goals for cyber peace. The Cyber Peace Forum intends to get some of the leading thinkers, executive leaders, policymakers and innovative thinkers towards defining these goals and establishing our fundamental expectation for peace in the cyber space.

We welcome you to join us for live online event where we will put our heads and full consciousness together for addressing this significant topic.
