Global multilateral agreement or convention is necessary to effectively combat cybercrimes that have crossed the geographical boundaries of states and to provide security in cyberspace. Budapest Convention, which was adopted in the framework of Council of Europe and has been in force for 10 years, now is not considered satisfactory by some national states, since it is of a regional character and does not cover new threats in cyberspace, and some states initiate elaborating new global cybersecutiry convention in the framework of the UN. The present research analyses the advantages and disadvantages of Budapest Convention, proposes forecast for future development of events and possible solutions by examining the disagreement among the leading states of the world on new global cybersecutiry convention.
