A Declaration of Cyber Sovereignty
Separation of the physical and digital citizen.
Over the course of human events, technology transforms society. Such is the case and the distinction between the physical and digital self. When, in the face of this transformation, it becomes necessary for one people to rise above the political constraints that have hampered their security, their privacy, and their economic well-being; they must defend themselves. It requires them to take peaceful actions to safeguard these liberties that world nations either cannot or will not defend.
Were a foreign army to physically attack citizens, infrastructure, or industry, a military response to protect them would be expected. But in reality, we are all under attack. Not physically, but digitally, and with no protection in sight. Those attacks are coming from nation states, organized crime, as well as disgruntled insiders, while the constraints and limitations of our current governments, leave us all vulnerable. Regarding cyberspace, nations are unable to provide for our common defense, we must take it upon ourselves.
Therefore, we propose to establish safer digital enclave. To establish a secure Internet nation for business, ecommerce, and life. A confederation of individuals and organizations that willingly participate in an online community that actively and consistently takes steps to secure and defend our personal privacy, data, and infrastructure.
To achieve that vision, we must first agree on the reference architecture(s) that can meet our intended outcomes. And that architecture must allow for the secured, but free flow of information inside Cyberlandia and the protected exchange of data to and from Cyberlandia. The goal is the transfer of data that meets with all significant worldwide security frameworks.
The second milestone will be to gain the involvement of the security vendors that would make Cyberlandia possible. These foundational vendors would participate in a proof-of-concept that, at scale, will provide for them a new and profitable market. For the citizens and organizations of Cyberlandia, an affordable path to cyber security is the benefit.
