The new CyberPeace Institute is backed by Microsoft and Mastercard. 

It will work to help people whose lives have been harmed by cyberattacks – especially those most vulnerable – and help them to become more resilient to attacks. 

More broadly, the institute will also highlight the biggest problems and promote positive cyber behavior. 

Geneva is also home to a foundation which promotes links with innovation, science and diplomacy and Microsoft is also working towards a new Geneva Convention on how countries should behave in cyberspace.
