Our legal and policy experts actively participate, as a civil society organisation, in Working Groups and Coalitions advocating for a human centric approach and human rights in digital and cyberspace.
The laws and norms related to cyber, and the use of ICTs are continually being discussed and negotiated by States at UN fora. As a civil society organisation, we actively engage and submit position papers to ensure that negotiations recognise the impact of cyber-related issues on people’s lives, respect human rights and promote accountability.
Disinformation, fake news and infodemics undermine democracy and accelerate cyberattacks. We launched the Stop Infodemic campaign to promote responsible behavior in cyberspace.
Cybercrime continues to evolve. Action to tackle it puts at risk fundamental human rights and an open and free internet. Civil society and industry, through this Multi-Stakeholder Manifesto, provide a set of principles to guide governments in negotiations for a Cybercrime Convention at the United Nations.
Healthcare is under cyberattack. During one of the worst pandemics in history, cyberattacks are a direct threat to lives and health. Our Call to Governments appeals for the protection of medical and other healthcare facilities.
Cyberattacks are attacks on people. It is important to document the impact of such attacks to ensure responses meet the needs of those affected, influence policy and calls for accountability. If you have experienced the impact of a cyberattack, please share your story with us.
