Cyberthreats now arise anywhere, at any time, causing immense damage in a very short space of time. No country is safe – cybercriminals strike at will, and anonymously. Such far-reaching challenges posed by these new and greater cyberthreats can only be addressed at the global level.

This session will provide a forum for facilitating discussions on the work carried out in the area of cybersecurity under Action Line C5 and will discuss how best to build confidence and security in the use of ICTs through a global platform for dialogue and cooperation. Specific areas where cooperation and collaboration are needed include inter alia:

  1. Legal measures

  2. Technical and Procedural measures

  3. Organizational Structures

  4. Capacity Building

  5. International Cooperation
