    Governments find themselves struggling to deal with the issue of cybersecurity. Given the current state of play in cybersecurity, it is not surprising that any discussion sooner or later ends up as a confusing mix of viewpoints on fundamental rights, privacy, law enforcement, human rights, globalisation and national security, thus leading to a gridlock. With the passage of time, differing perspectives and approaches are getting more and more entrenched, thus making the job of arriving at a consensus on contentious issues even more difficult. The resultant disarray has emboldened a variety of malicious actors (state, non-state and criminal) to take advantage of the situation, both at the national and international levels.

    This monograph attempts to provide an overview of the the global, regional and domestic dynamics that impact cybersecurity today.
