“Just a few months ago in April 2015 the global Conference on Cyberspace didn’t give much optimism to those expecting a unison of voices in favour of an international agreement on norms of state behaviour in cyberspace. Now four months later the UN Group of Governmental Experts — a team of representatives from 20 countries acting voluntarily — have emerged from their fourth session in the past decade with a vision of the minimum norms to be adopted by the states to ensure a more secure digital future. While the resolution stating the agreed measures is clearly a progress and success for the Group at the times of scarce trust and mutual understanding among nations, there are certainly caveats and challenges to these achievements to face and consider in the following months and years”. — Alexandra Kulikova, PIR Center Program Coordinator “Global Internet Governance and International Information Security”.
