Citizen Co-production of Cyber Security: Self‐help, vigilantes, and cybercrime

‹ Back

Our Asia-Pacific Bureau organizes the online webinar titled “Citizen Co-production of Cyber Security: Self‐help, vigilantes, and cybercrime”.

Abstract

Given the limited resources and capabilities of states to maintain cyber security, a variety of co‐production efforts have been made by individuals or by collectives, of varying degrees of organization and coordination. This article identifies different forms of citizen co‐production of cyber security and notes the risk of unintended consequences. Safeguards and principles are proposed in order to facilitate constructive citizen/netizen co‐production of cyber security. Although co‐production of security can contribute to social control, only those activities within the bounds of the law should be encouraged. Activities of private citizens/netizens that test the limits of legality should be closely circumscribed.
