World Economic Forum: Catastrophic Cyber Event Likely in Next Two Years
Will a “catastrophic cyber event” really happen in the coming years, or are the unelected globalists using this perceived crisis to consolidate power through public-private partnerships?
Due to geopolitical instability, a “catastrophic cyber event” is likely to occur in the next two years, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Speaking at the WEF Annual Meeting in Davos on Wednesday, WEF managing director Jeremy Jurgens highlighted the “most striking finding” from a recent survey on cybersecurity.
“Geopolitical instability makes a catastrophic cyber event likely in the next two years” — Jeremy Jurgens, WEF Annual Meeting, 2023
“The most striking finding that we’ve found is that 93 percent of cyber leaders, and 86 percent of cyber business leaders, believe that the geopolitical instability makes a catastrophic cyber event likely in the next two years,” said Jurgens.
“This far exceeds anything that we’ve seen in previous surveys,” he added.

The WEF managing director went on to say that “cyber attacks can spread unpredictably.”
“We saw this in the case of the ViaSat attack that was done on Ukraine, which was initially intended to shut down communication services for the Ukrainian military, but as well closed-off parts of electricity production across Europe,” he added.
“If cyberthreats continue without mitigation, governments will continue to retaliate against perpetrators (actual or perceived), leading to open cyberwarfare, further disruption for societies” — WEF Global Risks Report, 2022
For years, the unelected globalists at the WEF and their partners have been prepping for a cyber pandemic that would disrupt all of society.
According to the WEF Global Risks Report 2022, retaliations to cyberthreats — whether actual or perceived — could lead to open cyberwarfare.
“If cyberthreats continue without mitigation, governments will continue to retaliate against perpetrators (actual or perceived), leading to open cyberwarfare, further disruption for societies and loss of trust in governments’ ability to act as digital stewards,” the WEF report reads.
If the unelected globalists at the WEF prove to be prophetic in their assessment, it would mean that governments wouldn’t need confirmation of an actual perpetrator before retaliating — just a perceived one.
“I believe that there will be another crisis. It will be more significant. We need to actually start preparing for that now” — Jeremy Jurgens, Cyber Polygon, 2020
Speaking remotely at the annual Cyber Polygon cybersecurity training event in 2020, which was aimed at averting a cyber pandemic, Jurgens said he believed that there would be another crisis, and that it would spread much faster than COVID.
“I would anticipate that when we do see this next crisis, it will be faster than what we’ve seen with COVID,” said Jurgens, adding, “the exponential growth rate will be much steeper, the impact will be greater, and as a result the economic and social implications will be even more significant.”
