The promotion of an open, secure, stable, accessible, and peaceful ICT environment is a recurrent objective in the multilateral processes relating to international and ICT security in the United Nations. However, the fragmentation of the ICT environment, and more specifically of the Internet, has become an increasingly severe possibility, which is also affecting the technical and critical components of the Internet. At this level, fragmentation may seriously impair the openness, stability, and accessibility of the global Internet and have cybersecurity implications for communication among networks and devices.
This technology breakfast provided an opportunity for States to learn more about Internet fragmentation at the technical level and its potential impact on cybersecurity, ask questions to experts, and engage in discussions on how to ensure an open, secure, stable, accessible, and peaceful ICT environment.
