Observer Research Foundation (ORF) is a multi-disciplinary public policy think tank based in India, engaged in developing and discussing policy alternatives on a wide-range of issues of national and international significance. Some of ORF’s key areas of research include international relations, security affairs, politics and governance, resources management and economy and development.
The fundamental objective of ORF is to influence formulation of policies for building a strong and prosperous India in a globalized world. ORF, in conjunction with the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), organise the annual CYFY: The India Conference on Cyber Security and Cyber Governance, whose 2013 event was held on 14-15th October, 2013 in New Delhi.
BIC has fostered a strong relationship with ORF in the last six months of the project and they have become members in the BIC India EWG and core working group no. 3 on programme management and funding focus.
The BIC coordinator, Mr. James Clarke from Waterford Institute of Technology, was invited to take part in a panel session at CyFy 2013 entitled “Multi-stakeholderism: Avoiding the PRISM Paradigm”, and was also a rapporteur of the overall event.
