The CYBER DIPLOMACY CENTER is a unique initiative in Romania, whose main purpose is to expand cooperation and research to the diplomatic area, which necessarily complements the technological, economic and social developments in the cyber environment. The center cooperates with ministries and authorities with responsibilities both in diplomacy and in cyber security.
The Center works to propose and implement strategies, initiatives and actions in order to improve cybersecurity, promote peace and stability in the cyber environment by means of applying resources related to traditional diplomacy.
