Navigating the digital landscape requires a complex balancing act between various interests, threats, and resilience. HCSS and the CyberPeace Institute are working together to increase cyber transparency, to inform policy processes and capacity building efforts, and contribute to accountability efforts. This new joint report provides an overview of the monitors and observatories developed to date by each organisation, to enable a broader understanding of threat actors, the impact and harms of cyber incidents, and accountability efforts related to laws and norms in cyberspace.
The Cyber Arms Watch
This monitor offers a transparency index on the offensive cyber capabilities of states. It compares the degree to which states are transparent about their declared cyber capabilities to outside perceptions of those capabilities.
Cyber Norms Observatory
With more than 1400 existing norms, the Cyber Norms Observatory demonstrates how normative documents connect cyberspace. The monitor also shows how cyberspace depends on connectivity profiles between actors in cyberspace.
The Cyber Comparator allows for an all-encompassing analysis of a country’s state of being when it comes to cyber. It brings together relevant documents, existing physical infrastructure, information on users and services and many more indicators.
Cyber Incident Tracer #Health
Attacks on healthcare target highly sensitive health data, and hamper delivery and access to essential services for people with potentially devastating consequences. The CyberPeace Institute documents threats to the healthcare sector from disruptive cyberattacks. By doing so they are able to identify critical vulnerabilities at a technical, operational and policy level to better protect the sector and the people it serves from harm.
Cyber Attacks in Times of Conflict Platform #Ukraine
The CyberPeace Institute tracks cyber incidents in the context of the conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation and provide insights on the latest threats and trends, and applicable international law and norms.
