Achieving Cyberpeace: A Collective Effort in Cyberspace and Beyond
Human beings are always impacted when cyberattacks are conducted. But the asymmetry between the capacity of attackers and victims leaves large groups of populations vulnerable, often without the ability to fully recover. Attackers also benefit from ambiguities in laws and the fragmented ecosystem of norms, and in this way, perpetrators are rarely held accountable for the harms they inflict.
One year ago, the CyberPeace Institute was created to remind us all that the digital space is first and foremost a human space. We tell powerful stories about those who are impacted by attacks, and those who defend them. We investigate and expose the facts, whoever the actors, whatever the region. We advance discussions with governments, industry and civil society. We make sure that all actors take responsibility and are held accountable for their actions in cyberspace. At the heart of International Geneva, we mobilize a global and diverse community to ensure human security, dignity and equity in the cyberspace – to achieve cyberpeace.
