First Committee: DISEC
The Disarmament and International Security Committee will focus significantly on establishing security within the international community with the new and evolving threat of technological weapons. This committee will discuss how nations should respond to technological innovations and the dangers they may pose. Delegates will have the opportunity to examine the relevance of privacy, how to further emphasize the protection of privacy, the ambitions behind security breaches, and identity theft. As well as these areas, delegates will be able to evaluate the roles of transparency, reliability, and accessibility within the global community. This issue sharply brings into focus how quickly technology slips from intended use into dangerous misuse, on an international security and humanitarian level.
