Debra Decker, Senior Advisor at the Stimson Center, submitted suggestions on the OEWG Pre-Draft Final Report. In her comments, she suggested the report advocate more forcefully for:
- the process to be continued and coordinated more closely with other UN efforts on cyber issues;
- the Group to broaden engagement with business, academia and non-governmental organizations; and
- the Group’s work to be more prioritized.
She also suggested that States support additional unbiased research in support of the OEWG, such as analyzing the conflicting approaches/views in many areas and developing analytical frameworks for States to better assess alternatives informed by lessons from other international risk management efforts.
