UN Security Council holds meeting on Cybersecurity

As cyber threats on government infrastructure of various countries are growing, the UN Security Council has held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the ongoing threats and mitigation remedies required to be followed by nations.

Early this month, the same issue was brought to the notice of Russian President Vladimir Putin by Biden Administration that met each other at a summit held in Geneva. As Russia is acting as a home-ground to many hackers, Putin was asked to exchange intelligence related to them with the US law enforcement.

Mr. Putin agreed it on the point that the same gesture will be exchanged by the Biden led nation for the hacking groups that were constantly launching cyber attacks on the critical infrastructure of Russia.

In relation to the threats, the UN Security Council took an assurance from its nations in 2015 that all the member nations will refrain from launching cyber attacks on each other and any breach in the agreement made 6-years ago will be eligible for legal prosecution at the international level.

More details about the meeting will be posted shortly!
