The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) welcomes you to the 2021 Cyber Stability Conference: Towards a More Secure Cyberspace (CS21).

Over the past two decades, Member States’ discussions have focused on the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) and their impact on international security. A breakthrough happened in 2021 with the successful conclusion of two multilateral cyber processes and the beginning of a new Open-Ended Working Group, the first ever with a 5-year mandate.

At UNIDIR’s annual flagship conference on cyber stability, we will convene representatives from government, industry and civil society, reflecting on the past and paving the way for the future. How can we build on successes from previous processes to advance the agenda for an open, secure, stable, accessible and peaceful ICT environment? What has been discussed and agreed so far? And what should be prioritised next?

UNIDIR encourages the participation of representatives and experts interested in issues pertaining to the international peace and cyber stability.
