U.S. Reported Ready To Join U.N. Cyberattack Talks

The U.S. will reportedly participate in U.N. talks on cybercrime and cyberwar that it avoided for several years. President Barack Obama's administration wants to tackle rising attacks on U.S. institutions, many of them from China and Russia. Russia wants to keep cyberattack investigations internal, but the U.S. needs international cooperation.

The Obama administration has decided to join United Nations talks on cyberwar and Internet crime. After several years of staying out of talks between the U.N. and other countries, the U.S. will participate in discussions with Russia and the U.N.'s Arms Control Committee, sources told The New York Times.

The committee has been leading the talks between nations that wish to tackle cybercrimes. The U.S. is interested in reducing cybercrimes and limiting military use of cyberspace, while other countries such as Russia are interested in talks on cyberterrorism. newsfactor
