GLOBAL CYBERSECURITY CULTURE IN THE INTERNATIONAL DISCOURSE: VALUES AND PRINCIPLES

Andrii Paziuk, Vsevolod Mitsik

Abstract


The purpose of the article is to analyse the development trends of the global culture of cybersecurity in contemporary international discourse devoted to outlining and framing the institutional and legal modalities for responsible behaviour of states and other actors in cyberspace. Methodology. The research methodology integrates dialectic, analytical and comparative methods. The scientific novelty lies in the revealing of the differences in political priorities, despite the formal consistency of the values, at the current stage of international discourse around the rules of responsible behaviour of a State in cyberspace emerged from the analysis of the results of the discussions of the First Committee of the UN General Assembly at its 73rd session (October 2018) entitled ‘Developments in the field of information and telecommunications in the context of international security’. Conclusions. The international discourse around the values and principles of the global cybersecurity culture is at an early stage and is essential for the formation of a coordinated position of international political actors regarding norms of responsible behaviour in cyberspace. In such way, by identifying the influencing factors and the ruling forces on behalf of the political actors, it is possible to understand the trends and predict its perspectives both from the point of view of institutionalization in the contemporary international order and legal framework that embody and protect human values as a core component of global culture in cyberspace.
