Arbitration Committee

Working Group Releases Cybersecurity Protocol for International Arbitration (2020). 

A Cybersecurity Protocol for International Arbitration (2020) has been released with the goal of providing a framework for determining reasonable information-security measures for individual arbitration matters and increasing awareness about information security in international arbitrations.

The Protocol is the culmination of two years of work by a Working Group on Cybersecurity consisting of representatives of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the New York City Bar Association (City Bar) and the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR).

For its contribution in developing the Protocol, the City Bar’s representatives consulted its Committees on Arbitration, International Commercial Disputes, and Information Technology & Cyber Law.
