Standards

Good Practices

Promote and implement effective cyber security standards and best practices for government and industry, in line with existing internationally recognised practices

The promotion and implementation of international standards (e.g. data structures, well-documented good practices and norms) helps enhance security and stability in cyberspace. Standardization (1) facilitates the sharing of well-established documented body of knowledge and experiences, (2) enhances cooperation, mutual understanding, and information exchange, and (3) helps to create dialogue on different national and institutional approaches.

The global community should work towards international standards that respect fundamental differences among stakeholders, but highlight commonalities and agreements. The focus of this capacity can be international, regional, or sectorial and should be the result of a collective effort by all relevant stakeholders.
