Twenty countries at the UN, representing the largest cyber powers, for the first time in history have agreed to limit their actions in the information space. Among the countries supporting the initiative are Russia, Great Britain, the USA and China. As part of the agreement, these countries agreed to use cyber technology for peaceful purposes only.
Among other things, they pledged not to put “bookmarks” in IT products, not to attack critical objects such as banks and nuclear power plants, and they were also going to fight hacker attacks and sabotage that were carried out from their own territory. So far, these requirements are considered exclusively as voluntary, but Russia plans to make them binding in the future.
