Reports issued in recent years by the United Nations Groups of Governmental Experts (GGEs) on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security have been a significant achievement on international security issues in cyberspace. However, the most recent GGE concluded its work in June 2017 without reaching consensus. As Member States will need to consider how best to build upon the last consensus GGE report (2015) in order to promote a peaceful, stable and secure cyber environment for all nations, this year’s conference provided an opportunity to take stock and consider next steps for enhancing cyber stability at the international level.
