Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert published a new paper in this year’s edition of the GIS Watch.
In the paper, titled Towards a cyber security strategy for global civil society? [pdf], Deibert maintained that the time is now for “a serious and comprehensive security strategy for cyberspace that addresses the very real threats that plague governments and corporations, addresses national and other security concerns in a forthright manner, while protecting and preserving open networks of information and communication”. To this end, “global civil society, now increasingly recognised as an important stakeholder in cyberspace governance, needs to step up to the challenge”.
