CSCSS ISC (INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY FOR CYBERSPACE) CSCSS ISC (INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY FOR CYBERSPACE) Document Transcript

  • CSCSS AND ISC: A COORDINATED STRATEGY FRAMEWORK ISC (INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY FOR CYBERSPACE) CENTRE FOR STRATEGIC CYBERSPACE + SECURITY SCIENCE CSCSS
  • The Centre for Strategic Cyberspace + Security Science has created this International Strategy for Cyberspace (ISC) as a strategic-level policy document offering a practical, comprehensive, and clear vision for the future of cyberspace. It sets an agenda for partnering on cybersecurity and associated initiatives at an international level, and highlights the importance of international cooperation in advancing cyberspace as a foreign policy priority. A CSCSS STRATEGIC APPROACH TO INTERNATIONAL CYBERSECURITY
  • The Centre for Strategic Cyberspace + Security Science (CSCSS) has developed its International Strategy for Cyberspace (ISC). In support of this strategy, CSCSS will continue to promote cyber innovation, initiatives, research, and education in its approach to international cyberspace issues and policies. CSCSS identifies the challenges to, and enhances, national, international, and economic security, focusing on cyber-environments that ar defined as being: n OPEN to innovation n INTEROPERABLE the world over n SECURE enough to earn people’s trust n RELIABLE enough to support their work These characteristics provide a basic framework for international obligations in cyberspace. They reflect the responsibility and obligations of states that apply regardless of context. The principles that should support cyberspace norms include: n Economic Engagement n Protecting Networks n Law Enforcement n Protection from Crime n Military Cooperation n Multi-Stakeholder Internet Governance n International Cybersecurity Development n Internet Freedom n Valuing Privacy n Upholding Fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms and the Right to Self Defense n International Cybersecurity Awareness and Workforce Education Driving Security and Technical Capacity through Cybersecurity Capacity Building Cooperation, partnership, and credibility are critical to cultivating a dynamic, international research community able to take on the development of technologies required to face next- generation challenges to cybersecurity. It is imperative that we acknowledge cybersecurity as a global issue that must be addressed through strategic pan-national efforts on the part of all countries focused on cybersecurity capacity building. In recognition of this, CSCSS will expand and regularize initiatives focused on cybersecurity capacity building and cyber technology development through: n High-level bilateral, multilateral, and international partnerships n Collaboration with public-private sector and academia n Enhancement of national-level cybersecurity n Ongoing promotion of cyber technology development, while addressing cybercrime and counterintelligence CSCSS, as part of its vision and mission, and in support of its International Strategy for Cyberspace, will work in collaboration with the public-private sector leveraging relationships with industry, academia, government agencies, and international cyber-counterintelligence community partners to establish an environment in which the norms of responsible behavior guide actions, sustain partnerships, and support the rule of law. These norms include: n Global (Cyber) Interoperability n Cybersecurity Due Diligence n Multi-Stakeholder Governance n Upholding Fundamental Freedoms n Respect for Property n Valuing Privacy n Protection from Crime n Right of Self-Defense n Network Stability n Reliable Access Development: Building Prosperity and Cybersecurity We believe the benefits of a connected globe are collective. Through our international relationships, partnerships, and associations, CSCSS will continue to support strategies that ensure as many nation-states as possible recognize the virtues of an open, interoperable, secure, and reliable cyber-environment, and become responsible stakeholders in cyberspace.

  • International Policy Priorities The International Strategy for Cyberspace is an invitation to other nations and peoples to unite in a vision of prosperity, security, and openness through a digitally interconnected world; to coordinate their roles in international cyberspace policy, and to define and execute a specific way forward on the international cyber-stage. CSCSS advances its activities across inter-reliant areas of operation relating to cybersecurity research, development, and education. Each area demands collaboration with the public-private sector, academia, and international cyber-counter- intelligence community partners. Taken as a whole, they form the action lines of an international strategic framework through which CSCSS will: Promote International Standards, Technological Innovation, and Open Markets Supporting the Economy and Economic Growth n Endorse free-trade environments n Encourage technological innovation on accessible and secure globally-linked networks n Protect intellectual property n Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of interoperable and secure technical standards Protecting Critical Infrastructure In coordination with industry partners, CSCSS will create a set of risk-based standards related to industry-critical infrastructure verticals, and will drive the development of cybersecurity plans to meet these standards Promote Cyber-Collaboration and the Rule of Law n Act as voice for international cybercrime and policy development n Work to define and harmonize cybercrime laws, internationally, through the expansion and adoption of the Budapest Convention n Focus, leverage, expand, and endorse cybercrime laws to fight illegal activities, not to restrict access to the internet n Deny terrorists and cyber-criminals the means with which to exploit the internet and cyber technologies for planning, financing, or attacks Computer Security Law Enforcement CSCSS will work globally to clarify and synchronize the fund- amental legislative elements of cybercrimes and cyber-law and to create standardized penalties for violations of the law Data Breach Notification CSCSS will actively promote provisions that would establish a national data breach reporting system. The provisions are aimed at standardizing the requirements for reporting security breaches by, among other things, establishing statutory definitions of a ‘security breach’ and ‘sensitive personally identifiable information’ Promote National Security: Facing Emerging Security Challenges n Collectively and internationally defend our national and economic interests, citizens, and allies everywhere they might be threatened n Recognize, distinguish, and adapt to national security requirements for increasingly reliable, resilient, and secure networks n Build-on, enhance, and expand cooperation existing between national, international, intelligence, and military alliances to confront potential threats in cyberspace and to increase collective cybersecurity Promote Effective Internet Governance and Frameworks n Promote internet governance structures that effectively serve the needs of all global internet users n Drive openness, ethical competition, and innovation on the internet n Protect global internet security and stability n Endorse and enhance a multi-stakeholder stage in a global theater for the discussion of internet governance issues and challenges relating to cybersecurity, spotlighting cooperation and collaboration Coordination of Information Security Policies CSCSS will work at a global level to establish a coordinated approach to information security policies relating to existing cyber-efforts as well as established international polices such as the Convention on Cybercrime of the Council of Europe (also known as the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime), the leading treaty to combat cybercrime internationally International Cybersecurity Awareness and Workforce Education As part of its mandate, CSCSS will focus on building a responsible and competent workforce through cybersecurity awareness and education research programs.
