The Importance Of International Agreements In Protecting U.s. Infrastructure
Critical infrastructure – such as food and water, energy and road transport, electricity generation and transmission and the information network – is not controlled and certainly not owned by governments alone. Therefore, our efforts to organize and implement an effective protection strategy are only possible if government (at all levels) and the private sector cooperate. This is particularly critical in the telecommunications sector in the United States, where more than 90% of assets are owned and controlled by private companies. Global and regional conflicts can have a significant impact on several critical infrastructure sectors in the United States. Discuss the importance of international agreements to protect U.S. infrastructure in the face of current conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. Don`t forget to cite your sources and list your references. It is this lack of people that makes international cooperation an even greater imperative. We have to combine our small numbers. And because cybersyses are global and we all face the same problems, IPC and cybersecurity are issues that require international cooperation and coordination. We cannot solve global challenges in a country.
We have to work together. Ma ZHAOXU (China) declared that terrorism was a common enemy of all humanity. In the face of the terrible threats it poses, the international community should adopt a zero-tolerance policy, regardless of the location or justification of terrorists. International efforts to combat terrorism must fully respect the sovereignty of the countries concerned. The international community should act together to address the root causes of terrorism and, in this regard, help countries eliminate poverty. Terrorism should not be associated with religion or ethnicity. All countries should take steps to stop the movement of terrorist fighters and stem the spread of their ideology. Concrete steps should be taken to implement Resolution 2341 (2017) to protect critical infrastructure from terrorist attacks, he said. However, these same advances have created new vulnerabilities for device failures, human error, natural causes and, more recently, cyberattacks. Therefore, the security of ubiquitous information systems, which under the basis of our critical national and global infrastructure, can only be ensured by an integrated and cooperative research strategy between governments and the private sector.
This strategy must, of course, be based on science and technology. The implementation of this strategy is unfortunately not so simple, but it must be implemented. ANATOLIO NDONG MBA (Equatorial Guinea) said that terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations, was one of the most serious threats to international peace and security and, in this context, its country is gravely concerned about terrorist threats to critical infrastructure. Protecting this infrastructure has been key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in the West African region. The security of critical infrastructure was necessary for the protection of water and food, the provision of education, health and employment, the development of renewable energy sources, the security of air, land and sea transport, the improvement of the economy and the well-being of people. Equatorial Guinea was encouraged by the regional initiatives proposed by the Counter-Terrorism Committee, although it noted the lack of African initiatives. The implementation of Resolution 2341 (2017) commended the objectives of other Council resolutions and the implementation mechanisms must be integrated into regional and national counter-terrorism strategies.
