Cybersecurity Futures 2030: New Foundations

7 Dec 2023

The global cybersecurity landscape is constantly and rapidly changing. By 2030, it will once again be radically transformed. To better understand how technological, political, economic and environmental changes are impacting the future of cybersecurity for governments and organizations, the UC Berkeley Center for LongTerm Cybersecurity (CLTC), the World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity and CNA’s Institute for Public Research have collaborated on Cybersecurity Futures 2030, a foresightfocused research initiative that aims to inform cybersecurity strategic plans around the globe. This report presents findings from Cybersecurity Futures 2030, a global research initiative focused on exploring how digital security could evolve over the next five to seven years. The goal of this project is to help shape a future-focused research and policy agenda that is widely applicable across countries and sectors. The findings are based on discussions held at a series of in-person workshops conducted throughout 2023 in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Washington DC (USA), Kigali (Rwanda), New Delhi (India) and Singapore, as well as a virtual workshop with participants from multiple European countries and the United Kingdom. The workshops centred on discussion of four scenarios that portray diverse “cybersecurity futures” that are fictional (but plausible) depictions of the world roughly in the year 2030. UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) independently designed the scenarios to explore trade-offs in goals and values that decision-makers will have to contend with in the near future.
