Working with international partners to deter and respond to malicious cyber activity is a core part of the Government's approach. As a responsible and democratic cyber power, the UK is at the forefront of developing a shared international understanding of the laws and norms that govern states' conduct in cyberspace. Earlier this year the UK submitted its national contribution on the application of international law to cyberspace to the UN's Group of Government Experts, for their consensus report on advancing responsible state behaviour in cyberspace. Furthermore, the UK was key to the establishment of a European cyber sanctions regime in 2019 and remains committed to working with our European allies to respond to malicious cyber activity.
