Pacific Cyber Capacity and Coordination Conference

Government representatives and cyber sector leaders from across the globe will unite at the inaugural Pacific Cyber Capacity Building and Coordination Conference (P4C) held from 2 to 4 October 2023.

To be held in Nadi, Fiji, the P4C represents a new, coordinated approach to addressing and advancing cybersecurity capacity building (CCB) in the Pacific.

This unique capacity-building conference will provide an opportunity for key regional stakeholders to discuss the status of CCB, develop a structure to inform future strategies and agree on the appropriate approaches and policies to meet the region’s long-term objectives.

The conference is being jointly funded by Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States through the Partners in the Blue Pacific (PBP), a recently formed multilateral coordination mechanism designed to boost regional cooperation and deliver better results for the Pacific.

The P4C is being organised by Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE), two trusted regional cybersecurity development partners with over a decade of combined experience advancing cybersecurity resilience in the Pacific.

Over the last 10 years, cybersecurity has emerged as a strategic focus area for the Pacific. Along with technology and connectivity, it has been identified as a priority area for the region by the Pacific Islands Forum’s 2018 Boe Declaration on Regional Security and 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent. This has led to significant investments in CCB networks and programs; however, these have not always been successful.

The conference’s various sessions and workshops will explore best practice cyber governance, Pacific perspectives on regional CCB, and methods to improve CCB operational results.
