Working Together: Collaborative Security in local contexts

7 December 2016 - A Workshop on Other in Guadalajara, Mexico


The choices we make about Internet security will have an impact on our ability to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs). This panel discussion will explore the critical role of collaboration in Internet security and how that approach affects sustainable economic and social growth.

Any practical cybersecurity framework needs to start with an understanding of the fundamental properties of the Internet and an appreciation of the complexity of the cybersecurity landscape. It should be premised on fostering trust and protecting opportunities for economic and social prosperity. Achieving security objectives, while preserving these fundamental properties, rights and values is the real challenge of cybersecurity strategy.

The Internet Society recently published an approach to tackling cybersecurity in the paper "Collaborative Security". This approach starts from the considerations identified above. The objective of this IGF workshop is to continue the development of the Collaborative Security approach and principles as they apply in regional and local contexts.
