Event description

The Foreign Ministry of South Korea, with the support of the Secretariat of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), organised an Inter-Regional Conference on Cyber/ICT Security. DiploFoundation participate in discussions at the session ‘Co-ordinated Fragmentation of Regional Cyber/ICT Security Efforts: Towards Global Cyber Stability?’.

The ‘Inter-Regional Conference between OSCE and Asian Partners on Cyber/ICT Security’ was designed to serve as a platform to further deepen dialogue on issues related to cyber/information and communications technology (ICT) security affecting the Euro-Atlantic area, as well as Asian regions, and in parallel, offer a platform to further enhance confidence in the cyber domain between some of the most networked states in the world.

Representatives of the OSCE participating states and its partners for co-operation took stock of the OSCE’s confidence-building measures in this area as well as other risk reduction efforts, looked for avenues for the strategic co-operation among states in developing domestic and international cyber policy, discussed inter-regional joint activities, establishing communication channels and transparency measures, and assessed emerging new challenges for states within the cyber/ICT realm.

At the session ‘Co-ordinated Fragmentation of Regional Cyber/ICT Security Efforts: Towards Global Cyber Stability?’, Vladimir Radunovic, Director of cybersecurity and e-diplomacy programmes at DiploFoundation, presented the key findings of the paper ‘Towards a secure cyberspace via regional cooperation‘ prepared by DiploFoundation, in partnership with the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP) and with the support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), which provides an overview of the international dialogue on establishing the norms of state behaviour and confidence-building measures (CBMs) in cyberspace. Radunovic particularly underlined the importance of multidisciplinary and multistakeholder approach to comprehensive cyber capacity building.
