Dominique Lazanski talks about the United Nations and Global Cyber Policy and how it is important worldwide.

Internet and cyber were built on consensus and interoperability, it provides market incentives and different stakeholders to the table. Lazansky talks briefly about global cyber trends and how it is an international political issue. She also points out how the multistakeholder governance model is not perfect but it brings the private sector, civil society and other stakeholders with different interest —not just governments— to the table for discussions.

...the idea of a global regulator is very exciting for quite a lot of people that work on the United Nations"

Cyber nowadays is usually seen as a political tool as cyber attacks and cyber warfare is brought to the discussion. Over the last year, there have been situations where nations have exercised control in traditional manners on cyber. This is found as an opportunity for the UN to offer advice or to create agreement in order to prevent cyberwar.

Lazanski talks about how very important members of the UN are working on top-down solutions or developing technology, expert advising, binding agreements and also creating technical solutions for different topics.

Experts getting together... trying to figure out, what again, how can we have cooperation agreement on cyberwar?... and, how we connect the unconnected trough market solutions?"

She also shares a moment to talk about 5G, the latest internet available and about censorship at the World Wide Web.

The countries that want more UN control are definitely not free"
