The ICCA-NYC Bar-CPR Working Group on Cybersecurity in Arbitration has just released its new Cybersecurity Protocol for International Arbitration.

Members of the Working Group included ArbitralWomen Members Stephanie Cohen, Hagit Elul, Lea Haber Kuck and Kathleen Paisley. Additionally, Eva Chan served as one of the Secretaries to the Working Group.

The purpose of the ICCA-NYC Bar-CPR Cybersecurity Protocol for International Arbitration is to provide a framework to determine reasonable information security measures for individual arbitration matters and to increase awareness about information security in international arbitrations.
