A Digital Geneva Convention to protect cyberspace

Digital Geneva ConventionPolicy paper

Governments continue to invest in greater offensive capabilities in cyberspace, and nation-state attacks on civilians are on the rise. The world needs new international rules to protect the public from nation state threats in cyberspace.

In short, the world needs a Digital Geneva Convention.

By building on the work done to date, governments, the technology sector and civil society groups can pave the way for a legally binding agreement that will ensure a stable and secure cyberspace. Everyone with an interest in advancing this process should commit to working with public sector and private sector partners around the world to find a practical way forward.
