MP Nagif Hamzayev addresses PACE on cyber security

Baku. 24 January. REPORT.AZ/ "Despite all of the efforts that have been taken so far, much remains to be done about the digital divide, state censorship and improved cyber security capabilities at the national level. In an increasingly competitive and dynamic world we are living today, Internet governance is key for the sake of people whose right is to be a part of it while preserving security," MP Nagif Hamzayev, member of the Azerbaijani delegation in the Council of Europe, said.

Report's Western Bureau informs that Nagif spoke during the discussions of the report on 'Internet governance and human rights' at PACE's winter session.

The MP said that the report affirmed the role of the Internet as “an indispensable tool for realizing a range of human rights, combating inequality, and accelerating development and human progress”.

He agreed with member of the Group of European People's Party, Estonian MP Andres Herkel that there is enormous potential in the Internet in all aspects of human development – from economic and social, commerce and trade, finance, business, innovation, mobilization and the attainment and exercise of freedoms.

"Since the Internet as a source of information is especially crucial in this context, we are heartened by Mr Herkel's call that 'ensuring universal access ... should be a priority for all of us'."

"Despite all of the efforts that have been taken so far, much remains to be done about the digital divide, state censorship and improved cyber security capabilities at the national level. In an increasingly competitive and dynamic world we are living today, Internet governance is key for the sake of people whose right is to be a part of it while preserving security.

"Today, one cannot understand development of the world without electronic communication. People need to stay interconnected and they have the right to be a part of the local, national, and international levels of development. However, the articulation of international consensus and standards should be prioritized!

"As we can witness through the report, there is still space for improvement in this huge and extremely important area of our life. These essential recommendations are not, of course, the only concerns of the Human Rights community. But, if followed, they would clearly improve the climate for Internet governance in the world," Nagit Hamzayev said.
