CFF Programs are driven by Key Issues and an Ecosystem Approach
Key Issues 2023
While the industry and the global economic ecosystem are seeking to thrive in an era of innovation led by digital, it is facing an increasing challenge in one of its most inherent aspect – which is cyber. Digital without connectivity of cyberspace is inconsequential and cyberspace without consideration to the cyber risk and security is not impactful.
The key issues identified for the current program year include a breadth of challenges and topics facing the CFF community globally. These were discussed and identified for deliberation and solutioning through the CFF platform.

CFF programs consider the end to end cybersecurity ecosystem and a regional development model. CFF considers supplying cybersecurity demands from the industry through a lense of building cyber capability and cyber capacity across the ecosystem.
CFF is driven by the fundamental principle of building security from the get go into every aspect of the digital production lifecycle. This directly follows the cyber capacity from the workforce be it cybersecurity talent or otherwise considering the approach of:
