Promoting trust and security in the digital environment

The digital technologies that underpin core societal functions and infrastructure, including supporting access to food, water, housing, energy, health care and transportation, need to be safeguarded. A broad and overarching statement outlining common elements of an understanding on digital trust and security, endorsed by all Member States, could help to shape a shared vision for digital cooperation based on global values.

In theRoadmap, the Secretary-General stresses the value of such a statement and asks the Secretariat to continue exploring with Member States whether and how to take such a statement forward. Consultations on this are ongoing.
