The United Nations Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) on Advancing responsible State behaviour in cyberspace in the context of international security (formerly: on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security) is a UN-mandated working group in the field of information security. Six working groups have been established since 2004, including the GGE 2019-2021. The UN GGE can be credited with two major achievements outlining the global agenda and introducing the principle that international law applies to the digital space.
In 2018, another UN-mandated working group – the Open-Ended Working Group on Developments in the Field of ICTs in the Context of International Security (OEWG) – was established in parallel with the GGE, involving 'all interested states'.
