United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Information Security (UNGGE)

The UNGEE was established in 2004 by the First Committee of the UN General Assembly to explore ways to strengthen peace and security through confidence-building measures in cyberspace and by developing norms and standards for responsible behaviour of states in cyberspace.

The UNGEE is not a permanent group. Since 2004, there have been five UNGGEs. While the 3rd and 4th UNGGE (2012 and 2015) managed to arrive at consensus reports, the 5th UNGGE 82017) failed due to the objection of the cyber superpowers Russia and USA.
