With the world increasingly interconnected through the internet and digital transformation (DX) rapidly gaining pace, cybersecurity has become a critical issue for organizations looking to ensure business continuity and growth. Google Cloud Security not only contributes to enhanced security through its robust and secure platform and cutting-edge technologies such as AI, but also actively shares real-time threat intelligence and insights with the broader community, working to strengthen the overall cyber defense capabilities.

When looking back on the history of cybersecurity, threat actors have evolved their strategy, operations and tactics by exploiting vulnerabilities arising from the development of digital society. This reflects the reality that threat actors have adapted to security controls by learning from defenders while controlling the impact of sanctions. During this time, the defense side has always borne a high cost, but the cost increase imposed on threat actors has been limited. To correct this imbalance, it is extremely important that individual actions expand into a collective and collaborate.

We need to create an environment that transforms the power of the "individual" into the power of the "group" and strive for its sustainable development. The Google Cybersecurity Center of Excellence focused on research, education, and policy development. Its goal is to support the building of robust cyber defense systems at the individual, organizational, and national levels, and to enhance the collective strength derived from this solidarity.
