India, EU discuss cyber security

India and the European Union (EU) reaffirmed their commitment to a free and secure cyberspace during the fourth India-EU Cyber Dialogue held in New Delhi last month.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement: “In particular, India reaffirmed that the existing principles of international law are, in general, applicable in cyberspace and that there was a need to continue and deepen deliberations on the applicability of international law to cyberspace and set norms of responsible behaviour of states.

“It also emphasised the significance of various regional, international and multilateral initiatives, particularly those initiatives where UN plays a key role, to continue the debate on these issues as well as in Cyber capacity building.”

The domestic cyber policy landscape, cyber threats and mitigation, internet governance, mechanism on bilateral cooperation and possible cooperation at various international fora and regional fora were among the topics discussed. The MEA said that both sides agreed to deepen the dialogue at various levels, with the next dialogue scheduled for Brussels in 2018.
