Detailed account of the published national cyber or information security strategies on three factors or aspects: objectives and issues; principles; norms.
This research applies a normative reading to 106 national cybersecurity strategies, most of them adopted after the cyberattacks against Estonia in 2007, an event that marked a strong shift toward securitisation of the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The paper identifies and discusses countries’ qualifications of afforded and expected standards of behaviour in the context of both national and international cybersecurity. The analysis is intended to contribute to the international debate around cybernorms and responsible behaviour in state use of ICTs.
