BPF Work Plan
1. collect high-profile cases and select +/- 1 incident per georgraphical region. (BPF community survey)
2. analyse the incidents for their impact on: a) people, b) CI/CII, c) government services, d) technical (infra)structures and e) incident responders **
3. assess the effect of the observation of norms and their implementation
( ** The UN norms on responsible state behaviour touch on effect on people, CI/CII (#6/7), essential services (#6), technical infrastructure (#9,10) and CERTs (#11).)
