Session: Cybersecurity: Safeguarding the Global Internet and Emerging Issues/Opportunities for Developing Countries

Time: 
Wed, 2011-09-28 09:00 - 10:30

Concise Description:
Effective cybersecurity requires effective transnational and global cooperation, as well as true multi-stakeholder engagement from governments, industry and citizens. This workshop will focus on three key issues of cybersecurity and the emerging issues/opportunities for developing countries: 1) legal/policy framework for public-private partnerships on cybersecurity; 2) perspectives on network survivability and cybersecurity; 3) perspectives on security threats and responses in developing countries, including capacity building efforts. In the course of the session, panelists and participants will share experiences and explore how they can develop and enhance national frameworks, law enforcement capacity and cross border cooperation, protecting individual users, and CSIRT/CERT capacity/operations. The discussion will also focus on the impact of local cybersecurity threats on the global interconnection ecosystem, the emerging role of developing countries in global efforts, and the tools available to support improved multi-stakeholder engagement on cybersecurity. AfriNIC will publish a short guide to the issues to be discussed during this session on its website a few weeks prior to the IGF, and the issues will be included on the AfriNIC June meeting. TechAmerica will organize a cybersecurity workshop at the IGF-USA in July.

#IGF11: remote visitor's sound doesn't work at #202. Well, yet, technology isn't always a panacea. :(

RT @lesavik1: He-he. Good question at SOP #202: why web registration form for #igf11 was transmitted through http, not https?
