Interested to learn that they are back again with another version, thanks for sharing Camino.

I suspect this document will be resonating around even if as WK notes it won’t be adopted per se.  Indeed, look for a fun WSIS+10 intergovernmental summit in December.

It starts already with the terminology "Information Security". There is no definition. Other instruments use cybersecurity. This is also different from cybercrime, cyberterrorism, cyberwar, cyberespionage etc. No mentioning of the Tallin Manual. Is there already a timetable for a 4th GGE?

The Africans adopted last years a seperate convention on cybersecurity. The Budapest Convention has only a limited number of members.    So something has to be done. CBMs could be the bridge into the 2020s, but a long way to go.
