Ensuring trust and safety in the digital world

Cyber Policy Portal

United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR)

The Cyber Policy Portal, launched in January 2019, is an interactive online tool for policymakers and experts that maps the cybersecurity and cybersecurity-related policy landscape. It provides a rigorous, accessible, and up-to-date overview of the cybersecurity capacity of all 193 UN Member States, as well as selected regional and international organizations and multilateral frameworks. Individual profiles summarize and link key cyber strategy documents, responsible agencies, legislation, and multilateral agreements. Additional features include sharable and printable profiles, and feedback mechanisms, facilitating accurate and timely updates of the profiles. This confidence-building tool seeks to support informed participation by relevant stakeholders in all policy processes and promote trust, transparency, and cooperation in cyberspace.
