System Update explores the relationship between the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda on the one hand and cyber-enabled threats and cybersecurity on the other.

The paper analyses the linkages between WPS priority themes—gender equality, women’s participation in international security, prevention and protection of violence against women, gender-differentiated needs—and international cybersecurity. It identifies priority areas that should be addressed to ensure a gender-inclusive cyberspace that protects the rights of women and girls.
