As the world becomes more dependent on digital technologies, individuals, businesses and states face a growing array of “cyber threats”. 

These threats are real, and can pose significant risks to our safety and security, our right to privacy, and our trust in the digital environment. But responses to cyber threats—whether at the national, regional, or global level—can undermine human rights as well; and the spaces where these responses are decided are often closed to civil society. 

GPD’s trust and security work focuses on making cyber-related policies and laws more rights-respecting, and influencing relevant processes so that they are more open, inclusive and transparent.
