ICCA Creates Cybersecurity Working Group

By February 6, 2018October 9th, 2020Chang Law

The International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) created a new Working Group to study Cybersecurity in International Arbitration.

Confidentiality of disputes is a cornerstone of international arbitration, but cybersecurity breaches undermine that assurance. The Cybersecurity Working Group is tasked to develop a set of practical guidelines and optional protocols to guard against the cyber seizure of confidential information involved in arbitrations.

The Cybersecurity Working Group will present its proposed guidelines to the 24th ICCA Congress in Sydney, in April 2018.

The Cybersecurity Working Group is a collaboration with the New York City Bar Association and the Conflict Prevention & Resolution Institute (CPR).
