Security Risk for Some
The United States and a handful of other nations called for the declaration of freedoms in Cyberspace at a European Security Conference. The proposal was short handed as it was denied by political systems such as Russia who see the internet as a security risk. The proposal had no chance of passing with such opposition, proposals only can be passed with a full consensus. The United States believes that individuals should receive the same freedoms online as they do in the real world. This comes at a time where Russia, after last weeks elections, finds itself in the midst of having to defend the validity of their online balloting system. For more information please click here.
