BSA Releases New Cyber Agenda to Advance Digital Transformation

 2023 Agenda Highlights Policy Priorities to Strengthen Cybersecurity

WASHINGTON – October 25, 2022 – BSA | The Software Alliance, the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace, today released its 2023 Global Cyber Agenda, “Enhancing Cyber Policy, Advancing Digital Transformation.” The agenda’s release comes during International Cybersecurity Awareness Month and at a time when cybersecurity policy is developing quickly around the world.

BSA’s 2023 agenda highlights the need for policymakers to develop cybersecurity rules that are based on best practices, outcome-focused, and harmonized within and between countries. It also highlights the need to anticipate security in emerging technologies, invest in modern IT infrastructure, and develop a cyber workforce for the future.

Companies around the world are harnessing digital transformation. International Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an important time for software developers, governments, and businesses to highlight that we all have a role in securing our data and networks.

“Secure software and strong cybersecurity practices are not only important for the technology sector. Effective regulation that is appropriately targeted and encourages the use of best practices is needed to drive economic growth and create jobs as companies in all industries undergo digital transformation,” said Henry Young, Director, Policy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “BSA looks forward to working with governments around the world to make meaningful, coordinated progress on the important cybersecurity issues that will affect our security and continued growth.”

BSA Global Cyber Agenda prioritizes the following policy recommendations:

  • Encourage Public-Private Collaboration to increase the likelihood that a law or policy achieves its intended outcome while minimizing unintended consequences.
  • Support Integrated Risk Management Practices to ensure the most direct path toward improved cybersecurity and a more secure digital ecosystem.
  • Incentivize Innovation with laws and policies that achieve better cybersecurity outcomes.
  • Prioritize Cybersecurity Over Politics to ensure continued cybersecurity improvements and avoid protectionist policies.
