Deloitte responds to the UK Government’s signing of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering for Cyber Resilience Principles

Statement by Jolyon Barker, Managing Director, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) welcomes British Foreign Secretary William Hague’s signing of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering for Cyber Resilience Principles, developed in collaboration with DTTL, which complements the UK’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security for Business Executives. The Deloitte Network believes trust in the digital realm is essential for innovation and growth in all industries and sectors and no one organization can resolve cyber security alone. Foreign Secretary Hague joins the 80 global leaders across public and private sectors that are committed to working together on cyber resilience

In our hyper-connected world, it is critical now, more than ever, for leaders in business and government to collaborate, share views, and commit to jointly finding solutions to defend against cyber risks—a threat that crosses geographical boundaries and industries.

As the knowledge advisor for the Partnering for Cyber Resilience initiative and a signatory to the Principles, DTTL believes their widespread adoption can raise business standards and contribute toward the shared common goal of achieving economic stability and prosperity through strengthened cyber resilience. We call on other leaders in business and government to join the Forum and its 80 signatories as we move towards a more secure and resilient online society.
