Multistakeholder Approaches to Cybersecurity Awareness

3 September 2014 - A Workshop on Other in Istanbul, Turkey

Agenda

IGF 2014 sub theme that this workshop fall under

Enhancing Digital Trust

Description

What makes protecting the public from cybersecurity risks such a challenge for governments, private sector and civil society? The governance frameworks and diversity of interest that comprise the Internet infrastructure are complex and no one institution, agency or organization can solve these issues on their own and every digital citizen plays a role in protecting themselves and the Internet. The sheer breadth and depth of these issues can be daunting because of the ever-changing nature of the threats. As a result, no one entity has “the answer.”

The session will discuss the multistakeholder approach to addressing cybersecurity issues: Why should a multistakeholder approach be used and what are the elements of a successful public private governance model. The damage done to the culture of trust that had been developing among governments, private sector and civil society - key players in cyber security and the question becomes - Can multistakeholder efforts continue to succeed in a post Snowden World?

These questions lend themselves to a more interactive session with lots of discussion.

The anticipated participants, NCSA, NorSIS and DSCI will add perspectives of successful programs from both the developing and developed worlds. Microsoft will add the private-sector perspective and government representatives from India and Australia will share their unique insights.

Our goal for this workshop is to have industry, governments and civil society come together in countries where the multistakeholder approach is not present and look at ways to replicate and implement these program. Agenda is as follows:

Description of how the proposer plan to facilitate discussion amongst speakers, audience members and remote participants

The goal of this session is to share experiences of some of the discussion participants and to encourage others to engage in the discussion to learn best practices and hopefully avoid pitfalls when embarking on their own multistakeholder approach to these important issues.

There will be no panels for this session nor formal presentations. There will be some questions we propose to audience members to spur conversation but the flow of the conversation will be dictated by the audience.

Description of the proposer's plans for remote participation

Since one of our goals with the session is to educate and inspire representatives of the multistakeholder model from across the globe about the successes of the multistakeholder approach to cybersecurity, we not only want a robust in-person attendance but want to also ensure that the program is available to remote participants as well.

Prior to the events in Istanbul, we will work through our networks and social media, including Microsoft’s 1.4 million + and NCSA’s close to 500,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter to publicize the session among likely interested audiences to not only drive participation but to also gather inputs for use by the session participants.
