Sovereign or Global Internet? Russia and China Press for Cybercrime Treaty

Costigan, Sean S.. "Sovereign or Global Internet? Russia and China Press for Cybercrime Treaty." Connections: The Quarterly Journal 20, no. 2 (2021): 9-13.

There is a near-constant rate of hacks against computers – by one recent count every 39 seconds on average for devices connected to the Internet.[1] If cybercrime is not tackled, at risk is nothing less than trust in the government’s ability to deliver on the promise of security.

Introduction

Modern digitized societies and economies are globally interconnected and increasingly interdependent as a result of global digital connectivity and dependency on digital infrastructure, communications, and systems. The analysis of these interdependencies and emerging complex vulnerabilities and threats requires a holistic approach, which goes well beyond the personal, the enterprise, or the sectoral cybersecurity measures.
