[Briefing] Internet governance in April 2015

27 April 2015 -

Online and WMO building, Geneva

Event description

Discussions on privacy, freedom of expression and cybersecurity were at the forefront during the Global Conference on Cyber Space held earlier this month. In the US, tougher legislation is being introduced to combat cyberattacks, while intelligence officials are hinting at ‘front door’ access to encrypted data. The US FCC has filed its new rules with the Federal Register, while the Naming community in the IANA Transition process has just published its second draft proposal. What is the update from the IG Barometer, and how will they shape future developments? What can we expect in May? Join us for our next webinar briefing on Tuesday, 28th April, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST).

You receive hundreds of pieces of information on digital politics. We receive them, too. We decode, contextualise, and analyse them. Then we summarise them for you.

Every last Tuesday of the month, the monthly Internet governance webinar briefings provide a ‘zoomed-out’ update of the major global IG and digital policies developments. Every month, we look back at what happened and look ahead to what’s to come. Join us online, or in situ.

The Internet governance in April 2015 briefing will take place on Tuesday, 28th April, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST). The webinar takes place online, but you can also join in situ at 7 bis Avenue de la Paix, Geneva (WMO building, 2nd floor). Registration is now over.
