BPF Cybersecurity: Putting agreements into action - operationalising cybersecurity norms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The 2019 edition of the Best Practice Forum on Cybersecurity is exploring best practices in relation to recent International Cybersecurity Initiatives. The BPF analyses existing initiatives such as the Paris Call, the GCSC’s Six Critical Norms Towards Cyber Stability, the UN OEWG and GGE, and collect and share best practices around the implementation of suggested measures. 

The BPF is part of the 2019 intersessional work program of the IGF and started its discussions already well ahead of the Berlin meeting. The BPF published a draft report that will be further completed with input from the BPF workshop at IGF2019.  (see below for more details on the report and how to provide feedback).

- Maarten van Horenbeeck, BPF Cybersecurity lead expert
- Markus Kummer, BPF Cybersecurity co-facilitator
- Professor Madeline Carr, Professor of Global Politics and Cybersecurity, UCL and Director of the Research Institute in Science of Cyber Security (Academia)

Panel discussion – focused on the following questions:
1) What do you see as a role for norms? Where you are involved in / responsible for an agreement, where do you see it on the spectrum of observation - implementation?
2) Can you share an example of an effective implementation effort?
3) What is the road ahead for implementation? Is there an opportunity to collect and share best practices on these efforts, or is a framework needed?
4) How can we assess whether norms are adhered to? Are there good examples of norms assessment or measurement efforts?
