About UNIDIR

The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research is a voluntarily funded autonomous institute within the United Nations. An impartial actor, the Institute generates ideas and promotes action on disarmament and security. Based in Geneva, UNIDIR is centrally positioned to assist the international community in developing the practical, innovative thinking needed to find solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

UNIDIR brings together states, international organizations, civil society, the private sector and academia so that we may work together—internationally, regionally and locally—to build and implement creative solutions that will benefit all states and peoples.


About the Portal

The UNIDIR Cyber Policy Portal is an interactive map of the global cyber policy landscape. It provides profiles of the cyber policies of all 193 UN Member States, in addition to various intergovernmental organisations and multilateral frameworks. This confidence building tool seeks to support informed participation by relevant stakeholders in all policy processes and promote trust, transparency, and cooperation in cyberspace.

To open a profile, click on the state or organisation of interest or use the Browse button. The Portal’s filter function allows you to search for specific policies across the database of profiles. You can use the compare function to analyze the profiles of up to three states or organisations side by side. The Portal is regularly updated to reflect the latest developments among profiled entities.

The Cyber Policy Portal is maintained by the Cyber Stability workstream of UNIDIR’s Security and Technology Programme, which is supported by the Governments of France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland, and by Microsoft.
