One of the biggest concerns of today is cybercrimes and cyberattacks. Many reasons motivate a cyberattack, such as cyberwarfare, cyberterrorism, and even hacktivists.


Cybersecurity, commonly referred to as information security, is the art of protecting networks, network devices, and data, including monitoring, surveillance, communication equipment from unauthorized access or unlawful use, and the practice of ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA).


With the current trends of Cyberwarfare, Cybercrime, and Hacktivist activities, the Agenda 2030 – Sustainable Development Goals, resilience and development would be difficult to achieve without cybersecurity. The United Nations being the pivot of establishing global peace and security, has a new focus on cybersecurity. The Member States to the UN need to have a clear idea on the Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) and Cybersecurity Framework.
