The French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs has released the results of the Community consultation launched within the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace. Kaspersky, an early signatory and strong supporter of the Paris Call, was among the 100+ stakeholders to participate in this consultation aimed at learning more about the practices, concerns and expectations of private sector entities, civil society organizations, the technical community, and public or local authorities in the field of cybersecurity, cyberdiplomacy and capacity building.
Some insights on the key takeaways from the Paris Call consultation (source):
We are proud to renew our support to the Principles of the Paris Call as well as the UN Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) – both fundamental for the maintaining of peace and security in the digital sphere. Within both tracks we strongly support further multi-stakeholder efforts to operationalize rules, norms, and principles that contribute to security of cyberspace through, in particular, strengthening critical infrastructure protection and ICT supply chain resilience. In this regard we continuously support and call for the development of concrete tools – including security baseline requirements, best practices, and certification processes – together with cybersecurity experts both from technical community and the private sector.
