Description

The IGF’s Dynamic Coalition on Internet Standards, Security and Safety celebrates its first anniversary following its launch at IGF2020. This multi-stakeholder coalition aims to ensure that security standards and related best practice play their full role through establishing the conditions for their voluntary, wider, more effective and more rapid adoption by key decision-takers throughout the standards implementation chain. The policy context for the DC-ISSS initiative reflects the increase in pressure for regulatory responses to foster increased online security and trust.

The Internet Standards, Security and Safety Coalition (IS3C) held its informal  networking session for interaction with individual stakeholders on day 4 of the IGF. The coalition’s coordinator, Wout de Natris, and working group leads summarised their messages from the previous IS3C sessions held on day zero and day 3. Attendees were invited to explain their interest in the work of the coalition and to comment on the work so far. Some attendees commented and raised questions in the chat room, resulting in some follow up email communication for a few attendees.   

 

The main part of the networking session was an interactive free discussion moderated by IS3C Policy Adviser, Mark Carvell, on the theme Stakeholder Empowerment.  Attendees expressed support for the objective on empowering stakeholders with expertise about important cybersecurity standards. There was agreement that one way of achieving this would be by promoting engagement between corporate and individual Internet users, educationalists, policymakers and decision-takers, and the technical community

 

In his closing remarks, Wout de Natris thanked attendees for their expressions of support and interest in the work of the coalition, and for their valuable comments on the coalition’s objectives. He provided information about how to subscribe to the IS3C mail list and encouraged attendees to participate in the coalition’s working groups. Looking ahead, he emphasised that the coalition would extend its scope in its second phase with additional working groups on specific Internet technologies and issues.  He invited attendees to submit their views on potential future areas of work.
