It is time to sum up this year’s prime digital event – the UN Digital Summit – IGF 2021, which closed on Friday in Katowice.
It is estimated that the coronavirus pandemic accelerated the digital revolution by seven years. One aspect of this rapid development has been the development of new types of cybercrimes. The fight against them will require strong actions over the borders. Cyber security was the main subject of the last day of the UN Digital Summit IFG 2021 in Katowice, Poland.
The Global North and the Global South are divided by a civilization gap. Access to the Internet can be too expensive for people from less developed countries. But also in the wealthy countries, many still suffer from digital exclusion. The fourth day of the UN Digital Summit - IGF 2021 held in Katowice was devoted to providing equal development opportunities worldwide.
Access to the Internet, which facilitates communication, education, and the increase of professional skills, is gradually becoming one of the fundamental human rights.
