One of the major challenges in the 21st century is the threats posed by cyberspace, such as cybercrime, cyber terrorism, and so on. The role of states and international or regional organizations should be in ensuring a safe environment, in improving protective mechanisms, as well as in improving the economic and environmental situation through the use of technological advances, and in caring for public order and other welfare, for which the developed countries of the world are working today, also by joint efforts of the EU and NATO.
