Frameworks for International Cyber Security

First book of the Frameworks for International Cyber Security is a response to the growing demand on the international cyber security community to keep pace with cyber threats, whether mirrored in threat assessments or brought to attention by real-life incidents. The edition represents a compilation of cyber security legal and policy instruments adopted by the Council of Europe, the European Union, the Group of Eight, the International Telecommunication Union, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development, the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe and the United Nations that provide various tools and approaches to handle the threats against modern information societies.

Second book
of the Frameworks for International Cyber Security (FICS) compiles case law from the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice. The reader will find judicial insights into concepts such as personal data protection, access to documents, surveillance and others, which shape national approaches to cyber security. The courts’ interpretation of the balance of fundamental rights and freedoms, public interests and security will offer arguments for legal analysis, advice, but also legislative drafting and expert discussions.

Third book
After an inventory of the Centre's publications, the electronic version of the FICS 3 as a compilation of national cyber security policies and strategies, is no longer available for download. This is mainly due to the adaption and availability of the new versions of the policies and strategies, but also due to some editorial and factual deficiencies. More information on the specific findings of the review is available when contacting the Centre by e-mail:
NATO CCD COE advises not to use the existing electronic or paper format version of the FICS 3 but to search for an up-to-date version of the cyber security policy/strategy from here.
