This chapter bridges the gap between cybersecurity politics and human rights literature by discussing the threat to the right to privacy, freedom of expression and the free flow of information posed by state and non-state actors’ actions, as well as detailing the various efforts by supranational organizations and advocacy groups to strengthen human rights protection in the digital realm. Based on the work of some of these advocacy groups, we attempt to define a middle ground between cybersecurity and human rights. Importantly, we think it is necessary to take a stance against the common conception that national security and human rights as they relate to cyberspace are always incompatible. Through rights-respecting design of cybersecurity law and policy and, very importantly, technology that is security- and rights-respecting by design, both ‘camps’ can be reconciled, with benefits for all.
