Cyber Harm, Let's Avoid It: Building cybersecurity capacity that protects human rights

This interactive session focuses on discussing strategies for mitigating cyber harms in the context of human rights and human security. Setting the stage for discussion, the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) at the University of Oxford will explore a taxonomy of cyber harms, identifying types and characteristics of harm as well as the structural factors that hamper the detection of harms and contribute to the neglect of certain stakeholders groups. Representatives from civil society organisations, the private and public sector will provide complementary views. This exchange will be followed by an open discussion, with workshop participants encouraged to share their perspectives on cyber harm, grounding the conversation in real-world examples of different types of cyber harm. This moderated discussion will explore how human rights concerns that arise from cyber incidents or are otherwise technologically enabled can be addressed. Emphasising the need to protect people’s rights and interests, these efforts offer support to governments and the wider risk management community in responding to the complex threats that emanate from constantly evolving technology-driven interconnections. Through these exchanges, this session seeks to provide new impulses for the development of best practices and advance an inclusive understanding of priority areas for future action.
