UN GGE and OEWG

Share on FacebookTweet

United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security (GGE) is a UN-mandated working group in the field of information security. Six working groups were established since 2004, including the GGE 2019-2021. The UN GGE can be credited with two major achievements: outlining the global cybersecurity agenda, and introducing the principle that international law applies to the digital space. 

Since 2018, another UN-mandated working group – Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) – was established in parallel with the GGE, involving all the interested states.
