IGF 2019 OF #6 ICANN - DNS, Threats and Opportunities


ICANN would be delighted to host an Open Forum with a theme closely connected to the Security, Safety, Stability and Resilience of the Internet and thus linked with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 16.

While this Session will allow a significant opportunity for delegates to pose any questions to the ICANN CEO and President, as well as the Chair of the ICANN Board, the main focus will be on the overall Internet environment and the threats that have emerged recently for the stability and security of the Internet.

It will also address the recent initiative by ICANN to track legislation and regulation that could harm the fostering of an open, secure and single Internet; and thus allow opportunities to prevent unintended consequencies
