The 2023 Cyber Stability Conference (CS23)
Nearly a decade ago, States agreed that international law is applicable and essential for a secure, stable, peaceful information and communications technology (ICT) environment. The remaining question is how international law applies to the use of ICTs by States.
To facilitate focused future deliberations and therefore meaningfully contribute to the advancement of multilateral negotiations, CS23 will focus on the first source of international law that States agreed on as being applicable in cyberspace – the Charter of the United Nations (UN). Specifically, CS23 will investigate the rights and obligations of the UN Charter applicable to cyberspace, including legal principles and thresholds related to the topics such as the use of armed force; armed attack and self-defence; role and powers of the UN Security Council; and peaceful settlement of disputes.
In addition to providing a platform for the exchange of views among national experts, CS23 will also feature introductory briefings from reputable scholars, adding clarity on key concepts and supporting meaningful participation of all States in the relevant multilateral discussions.

Assessing Cyber Skills on the basis of the ECSF
In September 2022, ENISA introduced the European Cybersecurity Skills Framework, a tool which summarises cybersecurity-related roles into 12 profiles, analysed into their corresponding responsibilities, skills and knowledge. At the same time, the European Commission declared 2023 as the European Year of Skills and announced the establishment of the Cybersecurity Skills Academy.
Numerous renounced institutions, with long experience in the field, are also thrown in the battle of reskilling and upskilling professionals, in order to help increase the cybersecurity workforce, and are introducing schemes that assess cybersecurity competences, especially for organisations in critical sectors. However, some questions still remain: will the assessment of skills actually help employability and professionalization? Do professional certifications and accreditation by training institutions help to ensure a high common level of cybersecurity? Will mutual recognition of professional certificates enhance professional development and still ensure high quality standards? Which will be role of the Member States’ public bodies in the coordination of this landscape?
In an attempt to address these questions, this webinar will tackle approaches to the certification of cybersecurity skills and how they can be aligned with the ECSF.

Cyberspace Governance at the United Nations
With a dual focus on cyber capacity building and international law, this event considers how these two elements interact and intersect, how discussions on them could progress in the UN space and outside it and how the two contribute to a safer and more secure cyberspace for all.
The event will explore how member states can achieve lasting, adaptable, and meaningful success in cyberspace governance at the United Nations whilst overcoming challenges for operationalization efforts, including differences in national capacities and capabilities, and divergences in national perspectives regarding the application of international law to cyberspace.
