It is a great pleasure to welcome all of you to the 3rd Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit in New Delhi. We at the EastWest Institute are honored to host this first-of-its-kind meeting with leading thinkers, practitioners, and decision makers from India and around the world.
With its remarkable information technology industry and rapidly developing economy, India will play a key role in the world's efforts to secure our digital economy. Building on the policy progress represented by earlier summits in Dallas and London, the New Delhi Summit Process is breaking new ground in cybersecurity policy.
EWI's cybersecurity work is unique in that it not only encourages the exchange of ideas but facilitates the development and implementation of practical solutions to global challenges.
India's contribution, with the cooperation of government and private sector leaders such as Minister Kapil Sibal, NASSCOM's Som Mittal, and FICCI's Dr. Rajiv Kumar, allows the global community of specialists gathered here to ensure the wide applicability of their efforts. We hope it also helps build strong ties in the international cybersecurity community. After all, virtually everything in the digital era crosses international borders.
We thank you for your participation and look forward to great insights and tangible progress as the process continues.
Chairman of the Board, EastWest Institute
