Сreation of a United Nations Cyber Police is a matter of transnational security

Yaroslav Bogdanov, Сhairman of the Board of the Fund for Protection of Investors' Rights in Foreign States

"The creation of a cyber police under the UN can be the answer to many questions in ensuring global information security." This opinion was voiced by the Chairman of the Board of the Fund for Protection of Investors' Rights in Foreign States, Yaroslav Bogdanov.  

In the context of global digitalization, the exchange of both local and transnational information exchange will become "digitalized". The relevance of interaction in the information field is growing in direct proportion to the volume of cybercrime, there is a strong correlation between the two.

The same can be said about the crypto industry. Absence of a unified system for regulating cryptocurrency market opens up a wide field for fraud, as can be judged by the number of crimes committed in the field of information exchange and communication technologies.
In early November, Bloomberg reported that a group of hackers were cashing out cryptocurrencies in one of the Moscow City skyscrapers. Four companies at once came under suspicion of the law enforcement authorities because of their assistance to cybercriminals.

On Monday, November 8, CNN reported a cyberattack on nine organizations at once, whose activities are in the fields of defense, energy, healthcare, technology and education.

— Today, all countries of the world are trying to fight cybercrime on their own. It won't have any effect, — states Yaroslav Bogdanov . It is only within the framework of international cooperation that it is possible to provide an integrated approach to solving cybersecurity tasks. At the UN, as a global regulator, a cyber police should be created, whose tasks will include the suppressing of criminal activity in the international information field.

The expert noted that there are issues in information security that cannot be solved on a national level. As an example, Yaroslav Bogdanov cited China’s "Great Chinese Firewall", which had been declared as a powerful protection system, but did not become an obstacle for hackers. The level of cybercrime in the country is high, which puts China as one of the most vulnerable countries  in terms of cyber threats.

— The UN cyber police should be guided by a single regulator with a unified goal, which will be based on clear principles and norms that are mandatory in all member states of the organization. It should be the single center of global information security," Yaroslav Bogdanov.

Earlier, the director of the bar association "Dictatorship of the Law" Eduard Budantsev spoke about the need to start work on creating a clear mechanism for interaction between states in cyberspace. The expert is confident that in the absence of a regulatory framework, it can easily be replaced by alternative codes that include a criminal component.
