About Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace:

  • The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace was announced in 2018 by the French President.
  • It was announced during the Internet Governance Forum held at UNESCO and the Paris Peace Forum.

Nine Principles: The Paris Call is based on nine common principles. Such as:

  1. Protect Individuals and Infrastructure: Prevent and recover from malicious cyber and digital activities.
    • As it threatens or causes significant, indiscriminate or systemic harm to individuals and critical infrastructure.
  2. Protect the Internet: Prevent activity that intentionally and substantially damages the general availability or integrity of the public core of the Internet.
  3. Defend Electoral Processes: Strengthen capacity to prevent interferences by foreign actors. Especially those aimed at undermining electoral processes through malicious cyber activities and disinformation.
  4. Defend Intellectual Property: Prevent information and communications technology-enabled theft of intellectual property. Such as trade secrets or other confidential business information. It provides a competitive advantage to information holder.

  7. Cyber Hygiene: Support efforts to strengthen advanced cyber hygiene for all actors.
  8. No Private Hack Back: Take steps to prevent non-State actors, including the private sector, from hacking back for their own purposes.
    • Hacking back: It means giving corporations and other hack victims, the permission to counter-attack cyber-threats. Hacking back can be more aggressive against perpetrators as it is a retaliatory attack.
