Providing knowledge and facilitating dialogue to support responsible state behaviour in cyberspace.
We believe in an open, peaceful and safe cyberspace. To support this vision, we conduct research, organize knowledge-building and knowledge-sharing events, and provide dedicated training and education activities. Our work supports multilateral cyber discussions and helps member states in the implementation of agreed rules, norms and principles of responsible state behaviour. This includes understanding how digital technologies are evolving, what threats they pose to international peace and security and how various governance tools, from international law to industry standards, can be leveraged to mitigate such risks. In addition, UNIDIR’s Cyber Policy Portal supports confidence-building by enabling transparency and trust.
