DISEC BP Question #2

Amid the rise of AI-powered cyberweapons and autonomous offensive capabilities, how should international agreements and regulations evolve to mitigate the risks of cyberwarfare? What specific measures can be implemented to establish norms and safeguards in the use of AI in military and cyber operations, and how can nations ensure transparency and accountability in this increasingly complex digital battleground?


This question must be answered by October 16h, 23:59pm (GMT-5 / Lima Time).

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea: The rise of new weapons technologies leads us to a situation of extreme care. The United Nations policy landscape on Artificial Intelligence (AI) lacks the substantial measures to correctly regulate negative uses of AI during cyber-conflict. Specially, although regional efforts have been made to move forward regulation measures —in terms of transparency, risk assessment and socio-economic impact— such as the EU regulatory framework (the AI Act), the UN has only partially addressed AI concerns, reaching no full consensus on military or conflict matters. However, the United Nations does not have to fully regulate. Not only because the UN —and specially— the DISEC’s mandate is limited but because, as the Democratic People's Republic of Kore…

SINGAPORE: Over the years, the transformation of technology globally has presented enormous opportunities and benefits, but this has also brought with it persistent, evolving and cross-border cyberthreats that can undermine international peace and security, and international collaboration becomes crucial, as no single government can cope independently with the increasing sophistication and cross-border nature of cyberthreats. In addition, the increasing automation of AI-powered cyberweapons will lead to an accelerated pace of warfare, and humans will be left behind in the face of faster reaction times of machines. The Republic of Singapore believes that as autonomous technologies begin to materialize with greater emphasis, a total ban on the use of autonomous weapons systems (AWS) is no longer a viable option, and limiting…

THE FEDERAL DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF ETHIOPIA :


"War is the epitame of hell for all involved", this was a phrase said by former Ethiopian minister Abiy Ahmed in his speech upon receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019. Minister Abiy Ahmen only exemplified in words the profound Ethiopian sentiment about the war, this is reflected by the Human Development Report 2021-22 of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), where Ethiopia unfortunately came in 175th place, nowdays our population is tired of the consequences of war, blood and suffering, as Abiy Ahmed mentioned in his speech "I've seen elderly women and children trembled in terror under the deadly rain of bullets". We acknowledge the terrifying results of war and the necessity…

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) is aware of the existence of frameworks and regulations that have been proposed and implemented in recent years. However, that does not mean that we are more secure than before. In 2022, organizations around the world detected 493.33 million ransomware attacks. These numbers clearly show us that numerous cyberattacks are still happening, there have been increases in the quantity of cyberweapons, which are more powerful and more difficult to control. Technology is improving and it could be used as a good way of developing as a whole, nevertheless, several people use it as a way to commit crimes in an easier and more effective way. All countries keep on looking…

NETHERLANDS: Nowadays artificial intelligence has become an integral part of our society. Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, the rise of AI will not only mean technological breakthroughs that will benefit our society, but it will also mean a higher risk of its weaponization into autonomous systems that could be used as a tool for cyberwarfare. This is why the delegation of the Netherlands proposes the establishment of the TULIP (Transnational Unified Legislation for Internet Protection) plan, based on 5 steps.


T - Transnational Definition of Cyber Warfare: Establish a transnational definition of cyber warfare to differentiate it from other cyber activities and facilitate coordinated responses between countries.


U - Unity for Transparency: Encourage nations to unite in…
