“Advancing Cyber Stability” at the Paris Peace Forum

&

Advancing Cyberstability report was submitted by The Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace (GCSC) at the Paris Peace Forum. The report is the result of 3 years of work by GCSC. With the increasing dependence of our lives on the cyber world, the concerns for its security are necessary.

The Commissions has introduced some norms to hold the stability of cyber world. The norms introduced by the GCSC focus on the following areas:

  • Norm to Avoid Tampering
  • Norm Against Commandeering of ICT Devices into Botnets
  • Norm for States to Create a Vulnerability Equities Process
  • Norm to Reduce and Mitigate Significant Vulnerabilities
  • Norm on Basic Cyber Hygiene as Foundational Defense
  • Norm Against Offensive Cyber Operations by Non-State Actors

“The calls for responsible behavior in cyberspace will only grow louder, in step with the very real risks cyber poses for international stability,” commented Izumi Nakamitsu, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for Disarmament Affairs. “All stakeholders should continue the discussion on norms and what they represent in advancing a global understanding of what is – and what is not – acceptable, in cyberspace.”
