In cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) will organize a High Level Panel on Cybersecurity and Cybercrime. The topic is of great relevance, since these rapidly emerging threats are raising serious concerns, and are becoming increasingly important for diplomats and decision makers in contemporary government and policy making.

Event Objectives

The Panel aims to discuss and define the concepts of cybersecurity and cyberthreats. Through an interactive dialogue which will ensue after the presentations participants will be able to expand upon points of interest directly with the panelists. The Panel will also discuss potential strategies, tools and guidelines which could be employed to counter cybercrimes. A discussion by the Panel on a possible future cooperation will also be welcomed.  

Additional Information

Due to the high relevance of the topic, we wish to include representatives of Permanent Missions in Geneva and International Civil Servants. Therefore, we would be honoured by your participation. The discussion will take place on 31 January 2012 from 15.00 to 17:30 in Room XII of the Palais des Nations. 

Please note that online registration is necessary for attendance of this event.
