CYBER Global Cyber Security Ecosystem
Cyber security consists of a continuing cycle of structured actions to:
· Identify (understand state and risks to systems, assets, data, and capabilities)
· Protect (implement the appropriate safeguards)
· Detect (implement ability to identify a cybersecurity event)
· Respond (implement ability to take action following a cybersecurity event)
· Recover (implement resilience and restoration of impaired capabilities)
All of these activities rely on the trusted, timely sharing of related structured information.
Almost every provider or major user of information or communication of products and services today is involved in a large array of bodies and activities advancing these actions and constitutes a cyber security ecosystem at global regional, national, and local levels down small business, households and individuals.
All those involved in the ecosystem seek solutions to protect the integrity and availability of their communications and information to the extent that is feasible and within cost constraints. As is apparent from the present document, there is so much information and activity, it has created what one notable security community leader describes as "a fog of more". Indeed, some of the activities now ongoing are dedicated to distilling and prioritizing the techniques and mechanisms that have been produced by other groups.
There are so many cyber security activities occurring today in diverse, frequently insular industry, academic, and government groups, that it is beyond the comprehension of any single person's or group's ability to discover and understand them all. The existence of an ecosystem living document in the form of the present document that is structured, regularly updated, and collectively maintained by everyone helps itself to strengthen cyber security.
Especially significant is the recent publication of a large array of formal national cyber security strategy plans and related material in countries worldwide which describe individual national ecosystems that are profiled in annex A. Discovering and providing a common structured understanding of these national ecosystems is ultimately essential to global cyber security work such as that of the Technical Committee for Cyber Security.
This Wiki provides a structured overview of cyber security work occurring in multiple other technical forums worldwide. The overview includes global identification of Cyber Security Centres of Excellence, heritage sites, historical collections, and reference libraries. It is intended to be continuously updated to account for the dynamics of the sector.The Global Cyber Security Ecosystem page provides a structured overview of cyber security work occurring in multiple other technical forums worldwide.

Definition of terms, symbols and abbreviations
centre of excellence: educational or research & development organization recognized as a leader in accomplishing its cyber security mission
cyber environment: users, networks, devices, all software, processes, information in storage or transit, applications, services, and systems that can be connected directly or indirectly to networks [i.1]
cyber security (or cybersecurity): collection of tools, policies, security concepts, security safeguards, guidelines, risk management approaches, actions, training, best practices, assurance and technologies that can be used to protect the cyber environment and organization and user's assets
NOTE: Organization and user's assets include connected computing devices, personnel, infrastructure, applications, services, telecommunications systems, and the totality of transmitted and/or stored information in the cyber environment. Cybersecurity strives to ensure the attainment and maintenance of the security properties of the organization and user's assets against relevant security risks in the cyber environment. The general security objectives comprise the following:
- Integrity, which may include authenticity and non-repudiation.
- Confidentiality [i.1].
cybersecurity: preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information in the Cyberspace [i.2]
cyberspace: complex environment resulting from the interaction of people, software and services on the Internet by means of technology devices and networks connected to it, which does not exist in any physical form [i.2]
heritage site: place (such as a building or complex) that is listed by a recognized accrediting body as a place where significant cyber security innovations occurred
historical collection: place, both real and virtual, dedicated to the structured gathering and availability of cyber security materials of historical significance; frequently denominated as a museum
information exchange mechanism: real or virtual activity established for providing continuing structured exchange of cyber security information content
reference library: collection of available published material useful for consultation for cyber security purposes
NOTE: The present document also includes significant dedicated publications in this category.
techniques, technical standards and operational practices forum: any continuing body established for the purposes of reaching agreement on techniques, technical standards or operational practices for enhancing cyber security
|NOTE: Not all abbreviations are used in the present document. Some are included purposely to provide a unique global reference set of cyber security abbreviations.|

Global cyber security ecosystem
Organization of the ecosystem forums and activities
This clause organizes the global cyber security ecosystem as six groups of forums and activities that are fundamental collaborative mechanisms for cyber security and its evolution:
1) forums that develop techniques, technical standards and operational practices;
2) major IT developer forums affecting cyber security;
3) activities for continuous information exchange;
4) centres of excellence;
5) reference libraries, continuing conferences; and
6) heritage sites and historical collections.
In some cases, the same parent organization hosts multiple forums and activities that are attributed to different groups. In other cases, the organization hosts numerous forums where several of them have fully or substantially dedicated cyber security functions - which are indented under the parent. Because of the very large numbers of forums, and in the interests of providing a useful understanding of the ecosystem, only very short descriptions are provided, and the reader is encouraged to use the URI links to fully appreciate the work being done.
This compilation attempts to be an inclusive as possible to expand the collective insight into the extent of the ecosystem. Toward this objective, it includes collaborative mechanisms that are frequently overlooked but enormously significant in the cyber security arena such as developer forums for the major IT platforms, centres of excellence that are rapidly growing in numbers worldwide, and continuing conferences - even hacker major global hacker events that regularly reveal cyber security vulnerabilities that were previously unknown.
This material is augmented by annex A which contains national cyber security ecosystems that have been published in national strategy or other publicly available material. Annex B contains depictions of relationships among these ecosystems.
