Microsoft Launches White Paper on Global Cybersecurity Norms at Berlin Summit

Microsoft launched a white paper entitled "International Cybersecurity Norms: Reducing Conflict in an Internet-Dependent World," at a reception hosted by them during EWI's Global Cyberspace Cooperation Summit in Berlin on December 3. 

The white paper proposes six cybersecurity norms for states to adopt in order to limit conflict in cyberspace. The paper also includes a plan for an expanded role for the private sector in enforcing cybersecurity norms and an argument for the necessity of a multi-stakeholder approach.

This publication compliments the work of EWI's breakthrough group on "Promoting Measures of Restraint in Cyber Armaments," which was one of seven working groups to convene at the summit in Berlin.
