Multi-stakeholder approach to cybersecurity: the role of intermediaries and law enforcement

Session subject

  • Handling cybersecurity in a multi-stakeholder manner
  • Intermediaries and law enforcement
  • Rule of law and other frameworks

Session description

The issue of fighting cybercrime and maintaining cybersecurity nowadays goes far beyond the discussion on how to investigate or prevent crime in a digital environment. An extremely complex ecosystem of securing cyberspace includes constantly growing number of international and national actors (both public and private) linked to the information infrastructure networks and services. The new emerging threats and legal, technical and policy responses to the cybersecurity problems in a cross-border environment raise broader concerns on how to avoid fragmentation of Internet along national boundaries to cope with those challenges.

The session is going to consider cybersecurity from this broader perspective of universal, secure and non-fragmented cyberspace.

The key issues to be discussed at the Plenary 6 are:

-Institutional frameworks for cybersecurity (including multi-stakeholderism)

-Rule of law and legal frameworks, including self- and co-regulatory frameworks in a cross-border environment, law collision

-The issue of intermediaries (including ISPs, global service providers, platforms and others) in a cybersecurity ecosystem

-Universality of Internet and non-fragmentation

-Safeguards and human rights see also Discussion.
