Topic: "What security measures should be put in place to protect online information?"

Noting the delegate of France’s belief that the Internet is a key aspect of today’s political, financial and social landscape

Reminding other delegates that the Internet is an essential tool for civil societies, businesses and organisations but also for the everyday individual. And therefore the promotion of a secure digital space is at the heart of the world’s current interests. For this reason the delegate of France,

I. Reaffirms and supports, decisions made at The Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime, in 2001, that aim to tackle online security by:

a. Promoting the integrity and availability of data and information systems
b. Combating computer falsification and fraud
c. Opposing intellectual property infringements

II. Combats criminal uses of cyberspace and protecting against cyberattacks designed to damage information and communication systems by:

a. Penalising intellectual property infringements to avoid copyright abuse and to protect copyright holders
b. Treating electronic transmission of child pornography as a serious criminal offence
c. Regulating cyberspace by creating international standards for cyberspace behaviour
d. Dissuading states from creating national legal frameworks to regulate cyberspace as this could infringe on residents’ rights
e. Taking down websites that infringe on copyright, host content that incites racial hatred, discrimination or child pornography in correlation with the prosecution of any individuals involved in the distribution or hosting such material
f. Discussing the nature of the regulations to be put in place on an international level, with organisations such as the United Nations, these regulations would discuss different internet protocols but also the best way in which to fight cybercrime
g. Participating in cybersecurity forums to allow all nations to have a say in decisions regarding cybersecurity

III. Protects individual privacy rights by:

a. Allowing, in all cases, the user to have control over its own online information and ensuring that all parties respect this fundamental right
b. Fighting against the illegal storing, and any unauthorized divulgation, of personal data, and treating violations of personal data agreements as a crime, that would induce prosecution for an individual and financial sanctions for any company involved.
