'Need international law to deal with hackers'

A common international law is required to effectively deal with hackers, Cyber Security Chief Gulshan Rai said on Friday.

As the world faces cyberattack threats, all countries have to work jointly for a common global law to deal with the situation, said Rai, the national cybersecurity coordinator in the Prime Minister's Office, at the Global Conference on Cyber Space (GCCS) here.

"To establish a comprehensive measure to deal with cyber threats, we need more collaboration at the global level," Rai said.

Iddo Moed, the cybersecurity coordinator in the Israeli foreign ministry, agreed that fighting rising cyber threats required global cooperation based on shared values.

"Cyberspace belongs to everyone and to no one in particular," said Uri Rosenthal, former foreign minister of The Netherlands, adding that 60% of the world population currently has no access to the Internet.

Saying that India can play a leading role in driving digital inclusiveness, Rosenthal emphasised that fighting cybercrime also needed public-private collaboration.
