The goals of cybersecurity strategies are usually twofold: i) To protect society against cyber threats; and ii) to foster economic and social prosperity, in a context in which key activities are based on the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). In order to fully achieve these goals, national cybersecurity strategies should be harmonized with fundamental values and rights, such as privacy, freedom of expression and due process, as well as with key technical principles that have allowed innovation on the Internet, such as openness, universality and interoperability.1 The respect for human rights and these architectural principles is key to strengthening trust and fostering economic growth.
