The Role of the United Nations in Dealing with Cyber Insecurity (2007-2017)

Abstract:

The study sought to examine the role of the UN in dealing with Cyber Insecurity between 2007 and 2017. The study focused on the following specific objectives: to examine the role of the UN Charter in dealing with the threat of cyber insecurity; to analyse the role of the UN system in dealing with cyber insecurity in the international system; and to examine the challenges facing the UN in dealing with Cyber Insecurity. The target population of this study was the international systems while the study area was the United Nations (UN). The investigation utilized exploratory research design whereby qualitative as well secondary data from the World Values Surveys, government records, non-profit organisations (NGOs) records, media articles, and studies related to the current topic was the key source of information. Secondary data was analyzed using content and principle component analysis. Qualitative data as well as secondary data was analyzed using content and principle component analysis. Regarding the role of UN Charter in dealing with the threat of cyber insecurity the analysis has established that UN Charter can only achieve its overarching purposes of maintaining international peace and security and to save succeeding generations from the scourges of war if it prohibits the resort to any forcible measure likely to provoke military counter-force and, ultimately, the outbreak of international armed conflict. The study has also established that stability among states in cyberspace is under pressure because of the lack of agreed norms of behaviour. The findings show that not exclusively should there be an outfitted assault to legitimize the utilization military power in self-protection, however the assault must be noteworthy; it must be inferable from the state where the self-preservation is being completed; the utilization of power must be a final retreat and should probably prevail with regards to accomplishing guard, and should be proportionate to the damage endured. On the role of the UN system in dealing with cyber insecurity, the study has shown that setting up regulating structures and building trust in the shared advantages of consenting to understandings and standards of conduct will help decrease the danger of cybersecurity occurrences entering an escalatory winding of discipline and counter-discipline. Regarding the challenges facing the UN in dealing with Cyber Insecurity, the study has established that with the expanding multiplication of data and correspondence advances and the developing open door for ongoing borderless trade, cybersecurity is a complex transnational issue that requires worldwide collaboration for guaranteeing a sheltered the internet. The analysis show that few variables make the circumstance in the internet especially hard to control. For example, the nonattendance of a typical comprehension on the appropriate global tenets for state conduct in that area, a large number of the devices in the internet can be utilized for both authentic and pernicious purposes. What's more, states and nonstate performing artists are doing progressively advanced abuses of vulnerabilities in ICT. The study concludes that the contention must start by reference to Article 2(4) of the UN Charter as the general principle. Article 2(4) by and large forbids the utilization of power aside from on account of self-defence as set out in Article 51 or with Security Council approval. It is clear that action at the United Nations Systems, be that as it may, has been generally drowsy. The examination concludes that the rule of need might be relevant if the demonstration of self-protection is finished with the target to return or repulse the outfitted assault. The point of self-protection isn't to respond to the mischief done however to keep the appearance of damage conceivably coming about because of a risk. The study recommends that the case for attribution would have to be made with clear and convincing evidence. Additionally, the UN needs to have a fair system in place to punish those who have violated cyber-security. The investigation suggests that there is need to raise international awareness about crimes against information society.
