The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace

The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace, launched at the 2018 Paris Peace Forum, has become the reference multi-actor framework to promote core principles for the safety of cyberspace. It is now supported by more than 1200 actors, including 80 states, 700+ companies, and 380+ civil society organizations.

Ensuring international cyberspace security

The digital revolution has sped up the emergence of a global digital space. This digital space, the “cyberspace”, is the communication space made of network infrastructure (such as servers and cables), devices (like computers and smartphones), software (both human-machine and machine-to-machine interfaces) and data carried over the network. Cyberspace provides major opportunities for innovation, economic progress, cultural development and access to information. While its quick development has proved hugely useful for many human activities, it also brings new threats. New and dangerous practices are developing in cyberspace: cybercrime, information manipulation, political or economic espionage, attacks on critical infrastructure or individuals, theft of personal information or confidential data, compromise of information and communications systems used by citizens, companies and agencies… These attacks can come from State or non-State groups that respect no borders. These attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and intense. It is thus essential to bring the international community together to ensure peace and security in the digital space.


US and EU join the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace

The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace, launched on 12 November 2018 at the Paris Peace Forum, is a call to come together to face the new threats endangering citizens and infrastructure. It is based on nine common principles to secure cyberspace, which provide areas for discussion and action.
The Paris Call invites all cyberspace actors to work together and encourage states to cooperate with private sector partners, academia, and civil society. The 1,200 supporters of the Paris Call (80 states, more than 700 companies, 350 civil society organizations) commit to working together to adopt responsible behavior and implement within cyberspace the fundamental principles which apply in the physical world.
As part of their participation in the 2021 Paris Peace Forum, Vice President Kamala Harris and President Ursula von der Leyen announced the United States and the European Union's historic decision to support the Paris Call.

The Paris Call is already supported by

Public authorities and local governments
Organizations and members of civil society
