Ad Hoc Committee to Elaborate a Comprehensive International Convention on Countering the Use of Information and Communications Technologies for Criminal Purposes – Fourth Session

In accordance with General Assembly resolution 75/282 and the road map and mode of work approved at its first session, the Ad Hoc Committee to Elaborate a Comprehensive International Convention on Countering the Use of Information and Communications Technologies for Criminal Purposes, established by the General Assembly in its resolution 74/247, will hold its fourth session from 9- 20 January 2023 in Vienna.

The session will be held in the six official languages of the United Nations in a hybrid format with both in-person and online components.

Two daily meetings of 3-hours each will take place on the understanding that the online interventions using a remote interpretation platform do not exceed thirty minutes per meeting, in accordance with the policy to mitigate the adverse auditory health impact on (simultaneous) interpreters. In the unlikely event that online interventions last longer than thirty minutes in a given meeting, the duration of the meeting would revert back to the standard hybrid duration of two hours.

Delegations may choose to participate in the formal meetings in person, through Interprefy with remote simultaneous interpretation, or by both means.

The meetings of the fourth session will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Vienna local time.

The in-person meeting will be held in the Plenary Hall, on the first floor of the M-Building at the VIC, which has the capacity to accommodate two delegates for Member States, Holy See, Palestine and the European Union and one delegate per multi-stakeholder organization.

Global Cyber Policy Dialogues: Latin America and the Carribean

This multistakeholder meeting will bring together participants from government, civil society, academia, and the private sector. A central goal of the meeting is to foster genuine dialogue among stakeholders from different sectors and backgrounds. As such, the event will convene about 50 participants from countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region that are active in international discussions on cybersecurity and cybercrime taking place at the United Nations, Organization of American States and elsewhere. It will also include participants from some countries which have not been as engaged in order to raise awareness and promote more active and inclusive participation in these forums from across the region.

The conference will focus on the UN normative framework for cyber stability, international cooperation to combat cybercrime, the intersections between those two areas and UN processes, and how digital transformation in Latin America can be enabled by an open, free, stable and secure cyberspace.

Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B) 2023: “Cyber Resilience for Development”

The inaugural Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (#GC3B), co-organized by the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE), the World Bank (WB), the CyberPeace Institute, and the World Economic Forum (WEF), will take place in 2023 under the theme “Cyber Resilience for Development.”

Built upon four pillars – (1) Cyber Resilience for Development; (2) Collaboration to Secure the Digital Ecosystem; (3) Cyber Capacity Building for the Stability and Security of the Digital Environment; and (4) Solutions for Safeguarding Development from Digital Risks and Threats – the conference seeks to bring together decision-makers from around the world to catalyze action on mainstreaming cybersecurity, resilience, and cyber capacity building (#CCB) within the international development agenda. It also aims to raise awareness of how cybersecurity and resilience are an integral part of digital, social, and economic development as well as critical to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (#SDGs).

The first-annual GC3B is anticipated to:

• Develop a demand-driven and international Global Cyber Capacity Building Agenda for cyber resilient development;
• Enhance CCB efforts by accelerating current multi-stakeholder cooperation and public-private partnerships;
• Mobilize global action, promote coordination mechanisms for CCB at the global and regional levels, and encourage funding of CCB;
• Advance good practices and tools for the protection of critical infrastructure; and
• Showcase examples from developing countries, particularly across the Global South, that have effectively incorporated cybersecurity and resilience into their development strategies and infrastructure projects and successfully coordinated external CCB funding and activities.
