WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley released the following statement today regarding the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace:

“The Paris Call makes the compelling argument for global dialogue to enhance the trust, security, and stability of cyberspace. The Chamber supports the important goals of the campaign and is committed to working with all signatory governments and other stakeholders to combat malicious cyber activity that harms individuals, targets critical infrastructure, undermines democracy, and threatens peace among nations. The Chamber also prioritizes enhanced enforcement, effective deterrence policies, and increased cyber defenses through industry-led standards, best practices, and risk-based frameworks.Preserving an open, innovative, and secure online environment that fosters commerce can only be achieved through enhanced international cooperation between states, civil society, and the private sector.”

The Chamber’s Project Security is a joint initiative of the U.S. Chamber’s Center for Global Regulatory Cooperation and the Cyber, Intelligence, and Security Division. It promotes international cybersecurity and resilience that encourages innovation and reducing the regulatory and compliance burdens for cybersecurity practitioners. It does so by advocating for flexible, risk-based approaches like using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
