The latest issue of "CyberPulse" e-journal March-April, 2015

MOSCOW, 12 MAY, 2015. PIR PRESS - "There is a general understanding of the need for norms in cyberspace. However, any close-up discussion stumbles against differing views on what exactly these norms should be”, says Alexandra Kulikova, Coordinator of the PIR Center Program “Global Internet Governance and International information Security”, commenting on the Global Conference on Cyberspace in the Hague to Kommersant newspaper.

On 30 April 2015 the CyberPulse subscribers received the latest issue of the e-journal (№2 (14) March- April 2015). 

The focus of the new issue is the “Global Internet Governance and International information Security” (GCCS 2015) held on 16-17 April in the Hague, the Netherlands, and its achievements against the cyber-arms race escalation backdrop. Alexandra Kulikova, coordinator of the PIR Center Program “Global Internet Governance and International information Security”, shared her impressions and takeaways from the conference with the Kommersant newspaper as well as in the PIR Center blog. "There is a general understanding of the need for norms in cyberspace. However, any close-up discussion stumbles against differing views on what exactly these norms should be”, she points out. This is due, in particular, to the fact that there has not been tangible progress on the understanding of the key concepts and legal terms in cyberspace. Besides the nuances of the international law application to cyberspace (e.g. international humanitarian law) still represent an obstacle in the debates, and the principles of responsible behaviour of states to prevent cyber-conflict remain “a grey area”.

Andrey Yarnykh, Head of GR and strategic projects at Kaspersky Lab Russia, has shared his view of the three key issues, which need solution to prevent serious risks for the security of the global Internet. These are the supranational status of the Internet, a ban on cyber-weapons and cooperation in the area of transborder cybercrime investigation. 

Alexey Lukatsky, Business Security Consultant at Cisco, has come up with an exclusive analytical article, especially for CyberPulse, on Cyber-attack attribution. The attribution problem has been in focus recently as an integral element and a condition of the international law application to cyberspace indispensable for defence strategy. 

This CyberPulse issue also highlights the 6th Russian Forum on Internet Governance (RIGF) which took place in Moscow on 7 April 2015. PIR Center experts participated in the Forum: Oleg Demidov, PIR Center consultant, spoke at the session focused on the BRICS cooperation on Internet Govenrnace issues. The key points voiced by Oleg and other speakers on the panel are available on the PIR Center web-site. Alexandra Kulikova, coordinator of the PIR Center Program “Global Internet Governance and International information Security”, took part in the round table on personal data localisation organised by ISOC Russia on the RIGF sidelines. 

Last but not the least, the latest CyberPulse issue features the results and presentations from the seminar “Global Internet governance: key issues and goals in 2015” held on 18 March by the Center of global problems and international organisations in the Diplomatic Academy of Russia. A wide range of experts representing the state authorities, business, civil society and academia attended the event. On its sidelines the draft analytical report “Global Internet governance and ICT security: key challenges for the global community” was presented, prepared by Oleg Demidov, PIR Center consultant, with contributions from the PIR Center and Center of global problems and international organisations in the Diplomatic Academy of Russia staff members. 

The latest CyberPulse issue is available on the PIR Center web-site
