Hybrid CoE Co-hosted a Roundtable on Rules-based Cyberspace

Cyber venues are part of hybrid influencing, and handling cyberspace is part of countering hybrid threats. Hybrid CoE co-hosted together with Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs an event on 19 September on rules-based international cooperation in cyberspace.

The event gathered together many diplomatic representatives of the participating countries of Hybrid CoE. One key theme of the event was to discuss the recent failure of the UN Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) to produce a consensus report. The second key theme was to present the current regulations and rules of cyberspace.
