French President Emmanuel Macron released an international agreement on cybersecurity principles Monday as part of the Paris Peace Forum. The original signatories included more than 50 nations, 130 private sector groups and 90 charitable groups and universities, but not the United States, Russia or China.

The big picture: The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace is another step in the disjointed effort to create international norms and laws for cybersecurity and warfare. In most international matters of regulating the internet, there tends to be a wide split between the liberal Western order and authoritarian nations like Russia and China.

This is like the land mine ban treaty that we never signed because we depend on land mines at Gitmo & the DMZ in Korea. Cyber is now like the Wild West with no laws or restrictions - the U.S., China & Russia being the lead players.

Agreed. These three countries don't necessarily need it, especially China, which is currently taking the AI/future technology game very seriously these days. Chances are they have much better cybersecurity than all the 50 nations combined. I mean, China's hackers managed to infiltrate US firms. If any, those 50 nations should find a way to protect their cyberspace from these three countries.

To be fair.. a 14 year old could hack most US firms and even the US government. Cyber security has not exactly been a priority for companies and their products.

I guess this answers why China is having an easier time taking over the AI/technology game and quite frankly, I don't know what does that say about us... or if we're even worse or better than Japan, who recently employed a man that has never opened or held a computer before as head of cybersecurity.
