US backs Paris-led effort on cybersecurity cooperation

Written by

The agreement with France underscores a major push from the Biden administration to garner international support for its efforts to confront Russia and China over their links to malign cyber activity targeting U.S. industries and government agencies over the past few years. 
Biden confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this year over a series of Russia-linked incidents, including the SolarWinds supply chain attack and ransomware extortion incidents against Colonial Pipeline and meat supplier JBS USA, which were linked to cyber gangs that have operated out of international safe havens supported by Russia. 
Just this week, the U.S. formally stood up a cyber bureau at the State Department to accelerate diplomatic efforts to drive cooperation against malign cyber activity. 
“That being said, despite a lot of supporters, it’s unclear what, if anything, the Paris Call has achieved concretely,” Katell Thielemann, Gartner research VP told Cybersecurity Dive, via email. “So, it’s not clear what the U.S. signing now will add beyond diplomatic overtures, but it underscores the increased realization that this is a global fight, particularly as critical infrastructure in many countries are under attack.”
