About the Review


Welcome to the Cyber Security Review website.

The growth of the internet has impacted profoundly on everyday life and the global economy. It has evolved into a global, interconnected network of systems and information – cyberspace – that we know today, transforming the conduct of business and opening new markets.

Threats to cyber security are persistent and constantly evolving. With an ever-growing number of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, online commerce and the private sector worldwide, security experts are finding that their work has become a race against the attackers.

The Cyber Security Review is designed to draw on the combined knowledge, skills and expertise of the cyber security community to identify the emerging threats and facilitate the development of coherent policies and robust capabilities.

Our mission is to promote dialogue and provide a platform for information exchange and cooperation between stakeholders, industry, academia and security experts worldwide.
