Cyber diplomacy is broadly defined as the use of public diplomacy tools set to cyber challenges, and encompasses: building collective response to cyber threats; negotiating a cyber stability framework that includes rules for actions in cyberspace; negotiating agreements and cooperative frameworks; ensuring human rights are respected in cyberspace; using diplomatic tools to respond to threats; fostering capacity building; and integrating cyber issues into larger discussions of national and international security.
