At the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London in 2018, Commonwealth countries agreed a vision for strengthening national and collective cyber security.

At the meeting they signed the Commonwealth Cyber Declaration, an expression of the Commonwealth’s desire to maintain a free, open, inclusive and secure cyber space. The three pillars of the Cyber Declaration are:

  • a cyberspace that supports economic/social development and rights online;
  • build the foundations of an effective national cyber security response;
  • promote stability in cyberspace through international co-operation.
