The right to privacy is one of the pivotal rights rooted in the history of human beings. Almost all legal systems have always regarded this right as being sacred and should never be violated. Paradoxically, as life goes on, the threat to this right is growing rapidly, which constitutes a challenge to human rights' defenders and activists. This challenge is mainly triggered by the ever-advancing revolution of technology, which enables, inter alia, the State, more than ever before, to interfere with one's private life, This, in turn, endangers the societal value of privacy. However, the cyber surveillance programs have proved to be effective in preventing crimes; consequently, stability prevails and communities live in peace and safety. Therefore, the need for a compromise between the right of privacy and the need for cyber surveillance is being sought. Thus, the current paper is a serious attempt to carefully read through the articles of the international law in a search for such a compromise.
