BSA 2024 Global Cyber Agenda Highlights Policy to Counter Malicious Actors
WASHINGTON – BSA | The Software Alliance released its Global Cyber Agenda on Monday, which emphasizes the use of artificial intelligence in cybersecurity and risk-based policies to best counter the rising threats from malicious actors.
“With new threats from malicious actors becoming more prevalent every year, enterprise software companies continue to actively work to improve the security of their products for their customers,” said BSA Director, Policy Henry Young. “Improving cybersecurity requires partnerships between industry and the public sector to pursue incentive and risk-based policies that help to respond to a dynamic threat ecosystem.”
The 2024 Global Cyber Agenda urges policymakers worldwide to focus on improving the global digital ecosystem by incorporating the following five priority areas for cybersecurity:
- Enhancing software security by utilizing available tools such as AI, incentivizing risk-based approaches, and pursuing strategic adoption of memory safe code.
- Improving cybersecurity risk management by enabling cross-border data transfers, building a digital identity ecosystem, and improving cloud security.
- Investing in modern technology infrastructure through commercial solutions, leveraging cloud computing and multi-cloud services, and deploying AI-enabled tools.
- Harmonizing and making reciprocal laws and policies by making cybersecurity requirements consistent within and between governments worldwide.
- Building the workforce of the future by investing in education and training for all members of society.
