The French government announced on Monday a “Paris Call” for talks to lay out a common framework for ensuring internet security, following a surge in cyberattacks which has dented confidence in global networks. The move aims to relaunch negotiations on a “code of good conduct” which have stalled since last year.
Officials said the text, to be presented by President Emmanuel Macron as he opens UNESCO’s Internet Governance Forum in Paris on Monday, has been signed by most European countries. China, Russia and the United States have not yet joined, although a source in Macron’s office said a “critical mass” of US players support the call, including Microsoft and the NGO Internet Society.
