Driving a Paradigm Shift toward Human Rights-respecting Cybersecurity policy by design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The goal of the roundtable is to jump start a paradigm shift toward rights-respecting approaches to cybersecurity. The roundtable participants will explore how and where stakeholders can influence global cybersecurity policy making and foster rights-based approaches to cybersecurity. The roundtable will comprise individuals with extensive expertise in human rights, business, cryptography and national security, and will further the debate on the relationship between governance, security, and fundamental rights and freedoms online. The roundtable will focus specifically on the need for cybersecurity policy to be rights-respecting by design, and debate how to ensure that not only cybersecurity policies but also related policy development and decision¬making protect and respect human rights from their inception.

The workshop will use the draft recommendations from the Freedom Online Coalition (FOC) Working Group 1 on “Internet free and secure” as a basis for the discussion. The Working Group is a multistakeholder initiative comprising government members (the Netherlands, the United States and Canada), as well as individuals from the private sector, civil society and academia. A draft version of the recommendations can be found here: https://www.freedomonlinecoalition.com/wp-content/uploads/20a15/11/FOC-WG1-Recommendations-discussion-draft-IGF-2015-new.pdf

Chris Riley

Head of Public Policy, Mozilla
I operate in the area of Internet policy, coming from a law and technology background. My motivation is the belief that an open Internet delivers tremendous socioeconomic benefits, and that if we as a global society don't "get" Internet policy more often than not, those benefits will go away. That path took me from computer science, to copyright, to telecom, to Internet freedom, presenting me with many opportunities to do some interesting and... Read More →
