The emerging global threats, including those coming from non-governmental actors (e.g. terrorist groups) generate the need for international cooperation in this area. However, the scope of such cooperation remains limited because of current geopolitical situation, uneven technical capacities and different understanding of ‘criticality’ among nation states,” – Alexandra Kulikova, Coordinator of the PIR Center’s Program “Global Internet Governance and International Information Security”.

Only then will we truly be able to manage the ecosystem of this new digital age” - Minister of Communications and Information Technology  of India Ravi Shankar Prasad.
