About This Course


Cyber CBMs Course

Welcome to OSCE cyber/ICT security Confidence-Building Measures. Over the course of three modules, you will learn why and how Confidence-Building Measures play and important role in promoting international security of and in the use of ICTs.

The first module will serve as an introduction into the international world of Information and Communications Technology. With a brief overview of the work of the United Nations, it will describe the four pillars of the international framework for stability in cyberspace and discuss the role of regional organizations, like the OSCE, in these efforts.

Our attention will then turn to the development of cyber/ICT security in the OSCE and the 16 Confidence-Building Measures the Organization’s participating States have adopted.

Finally, we will take a closer look at each of the 16 cyber CBMs individually, with a specific focus on practical implementation.
