Cybercrime has been one of the greatest threats to global security. The internet and technology advancement that keep rising may have been very helpful to connecting the international society, but it could possibly help multiple types of crimes to develop. It is also hard to find the offenders for its anonymity, because of the borderless connection.
Therefore, United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Switzerland have joined force to promote cyber security, cyber infrastructure, and to put human rights under cyberspace as one of their priorities through Comprehensive Cyber Partnership Agreement (CCPA) on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017, at Tree House Dago, Bandung, Indonesia.
