Our SDG contribution

Protection of digital infrastructure is an area with a strong societal need given the growing prevalence of cyberthreats, the high societal costs of cyberattacks and the shortage of technical skills in the market. We are convinced that private markets have a vital role to play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, by driving change at scale and with speed.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future.

It is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace with larger freedom.

At the heart of the Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

Cyber security solutions and related skills development is linked to SDG goals:
