On the 24th and 31st of March 2022 Professor Vera Rusinova took part in the Virtual, open-ended informal meeting on the occasion of the Second Substantive Session of the Open-Ended Working Group on the security of and in the use of information and communications technologies(OEWG, 2021-2025). These informal meetings were focused on the role of the stakeholder community in supporting capacity-building of states in the field of information and communications technologies (ICTs) security.
In her presentation, Vera Rusinova shared some concrete recommendations on how the OEWG can contribute to capacity-building of states.
Firstly, alongside with a global level, the bilateral and regional co-operation is of crucial importance. The OEWG can enhance these forms of co-operation by elaborating model agreements and forms. It can be, for instance, a model CERT-to-CERT agreement and a model form of notification about an ITC incident.
Secondly, the notion of critical infrastructure lies at the heart of different efforts aimed at bolstering the deterrence against malicious ITC-related acts, as well as defence and resistance of states against cyber threats. So, it would be very practical, if the OEWG could have initiated drafting of a non-exhaustive, indicative list of the objects of critical infrastructure.
Thirdly, taking into account the huge importance of the experience-sharing mode, the OEWG could have suggested to the states to voluntarily share their best practices on the capacity building and bolstering the potential. As a result, the states and all other stakeholders will be able to profit not only from the 2021 GGE Compendium on applicability of International law to ICT acts, but also from the OEWG best practices collection.
