Hinsa Siburian, Head of the National Cyber and Crypto Agency(BSSN), in signing an expanded MoU to include emerging cyber technology and increase cooperation between the two countries on cyber issues.</p> <p>The MoU was further endorsed by Foreign Minister Marise Payne on a visit to Indonesia on the first leg of her trip through the Indo-Pacific on her way to attend the 76<sup>th</sup> Session of the UN General Assembly in New York.<br />  </p> <p><strong>Call for Aus/India funded grant proposals</strong></p> <p>By Saturday, 11 September, Minister Payne was in India for the joint launch of round two of the successful <a href="https://india.highcommission.gov.au/ndli/AICCTP.html">Australia-India Cyber and Critical Technology Partnership (AICCTP)</a> grants program.</p> <p>The joint initiative backs ideas harnessing cyber and critical technology to support a stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific.</p> <p>The program is seeking funding for proposals focused on strengthening understanding of ethical frameworks, developing best practice and encouraging the development of technical standards on critical technologies, including quantum computing and artificial intelligence.<br />  </p> <p><strong>First ROK cyber MoU as Australia celebrates 60 years of relations</strong></p> <p>This year we celebrated the 60<sup>th</sup> anniversary of diplomatic ties between Australia and the Republic of Korea (ROK). Six decades of cooperation was marked with a brand new MoU on cyber issues providing a strong foundation for collaboration on current and future cyber matters.</p> <p>ROK Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chung Eui-yong, and Minister Payne signed the new MoU during her visit on Monday, 13 September, elevating existing cooperation and formalizing regular bilateral Cyber and Critical Technology Policy Dialogues.</p> <p>Ministers also agreed to hold the inaugural Cyber and Critical Technology Policy Dialogue between senior officials in the near future.</p> <p>Cyber and critical tech issues were on the agenda for every stop of the Minister’s trip demonstrating how important these issues are to Australia’s foreign policy.</p> <p>Expanded MoU’s with Indonesia and ROK and the renewed AICCTP grants are a fine example of digital diplomacy in action bringing us closer to achieving a safe, secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific enabled by cyberspace and critical technology.</p> </div> </div> </div>

The reports also articulate voluntary non-binding norms of responsible state behaviour, while recognising the need for confidence building measures (CBMs), and coordinated capacity building. Combined, these measures (international law, norms, CBMs and capacity building) are often referred to as a Framework for Responsible State Behaviour (the Framework). Every UN member state has endorsed – by consensus – the reports of the 2010, 2013 and 2015 GGE. These reports provide the foundation for the work of the inaugural OEWG and the sixth GGE. </p> <p>Australia reaffirms its commitment to act in accordance with the cumulative GGE reports from 2010, 2013 and 2015 (A/65/201; A/68/98; A/70/174). Recalling that in 2015 the UNGA called on all UN Members states 'to be guided in their use of information and communications technologies by the [GGE's] 2015 report' (A/RES/70/237), the links below

Together with international law, the 11 UN norms of responsible state behaviour detail how countries should and should not behave in cyberspace.</p> <p>"We encourage everyone with an interest in peace and stability in cyberspace to use these graphics in your work, whether that’s in international organisations, government, the IT sector, civil society, the technical community, media or academia."  -Kathryn Jones, Head of Cyber Diplomacy, UK FCDO</p> <h2>Project to support norm implementation</h2> <p>The graphic materials were prepared as part of a joint FCDO and DFAT cyber capacity building project, delivered by the Australia Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI). The project supports members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to implement the UN norms of responsible state behaviour in cyberspace.</p> <p>The norms were endorsed by all countries in <a href="https://undocs.org/A/RES/70/237">UN General Assembly resolution 70/237</a>, as part of the UN framework of responsible state behaviour in cyberspace.</p> <p>In 2018, ASEAN members reached a landmark decision when all 10 states subscribed in-principle to the UN norms of responsible state behaviour (<a href="https://asean.org/chairmans-statement-3rd-asean-ministerial-conference-cybersecurity/">link</a>) and agreed to focus on regional capacity building implementing these norms.</p> <p>The project activities also complement ongoing multilateral discussions, including those in the UN Open-ended Working Group (<a href="https://www.un.org/disarmament/open-ended-working-group/">OEWG</a>), the UN Group of Government Experts (<a href="https://www.un.org/disarmament/group-of-governmental-experts/">GGE</a>), and those between ASEAN states and the ASEAN Regional Forum.</p> <h2>Guidance on norm implementation</h2> <p>Countries and organisations are seeking guidance on best practice norm implementation.</p> <p>The UK and Australia have shared examples of their national implementation [<a href="https://unoda-web.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/uk-un-norms-non-paper-oewg-submission-final.pdf">UK</a>] [<a href="https://unoda-web.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/fin-australian-oewg-national-paper-Sept-2019.pdf">Australia</a>].
