Cybersecurity: Paris Call for Trust and Security

On 12 November 2018, France's President launched the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace during the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). This high-level declaration on developing common principles for securing cyberspace has already received the backing of many States, as well as private companies and civil society organisations.

  • prevent the proliferation of malicious online programmes and techniques;

  • clamp down on online mercenary activities and offensive action by non-state actors;
     
  • work together to strengthen the relevant international standards.
