International cybersecurity treaty might not be achievable, report says – Nextgov

“It could take years to arrive at a global treaty on cybersecurity, since many states are not ready for it — and perhaps never will be,” concludes the study, which is based on ideas gathered during a May 2010 international summit sponsored by the Brussels-based institute.
