A Cyberspace at Peace for Everyone, Everywhere

The CyberPeace Institute

The CyberPeace Institute is an independent and neutral nongovernmental organization whose mission is to ensure the rights of people to security, dignity and equity in cyberspace. The Institute works in close collaboration with relevant partners to reduce the harms from cyberattacks on people’s lives worldwide. By analyzing cyberattacks, the Institute exposes their societal impact, how international laws and norms are being violated, and advances responsible behavior to enforce cyberpeace.

 

People

We assist non governmental organizations (NGOs) protecting vulnerable communities to prepare for and recover from cyberattacks. We mobilize supporters and volunteers and amplify the impact of existing assistance efforts in cyberspace.

 

Evidence

We perform, facilitate, and coordinate collective analysis, research, and investigations of cyberattacks targeting vulnerable communities. We analyze cyberattacks, including through forensic investigation, to hold malicious actors accountable.

Cyberpeace

We analyze responses to violations of norms, and how normative or legal gaps are exposed or undermined. We increase public awareness of the real-life impact of cyberattacks, providing a platform where vulnerable populations can tell their stories. We remind state and non-state actors of the international law and norms governing responsible behaviour in cyberspace, and advocate to advance the rule of law, to reduce harm and ensure the respect of the rights of people in cyberspace.
