“Cybersecurity and Internet Governance in perpetual motion”


Cyber Security Oxford, in partnership with ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), is pleased to invite you to a discussion around Cybersecurity and Internet Governance on Friday 2 June.


John Crain, Chief Security, Stability and Resiliency Officer for ICANN, the international body in charge of maintaining the Internet’s Domain Name System (DNS) will open the workshop with a short talk covering the latest developments and trends in the world of cybersecurity, and his perspective on the challenges ahead, both on the technical and on the policy sides.


He will be joined by other experts including Emily Taylor, co-chair of the global DNS Security & Stability Review, for a discussion and an exchange with the audience.


Expanding to wider considerations, ICANN’s Vice President Europe Jean-Jacques Sahel will kick off the second part of the workshop with a short talk on the latest evolutions in Internet Governance, from ICANN becoming independent from government oversight to the ongoing efforts to improve governance and accountability which are happening across the Internet ecosystem. He will be joined by the other key participants for a discussion of these issues with the audience.


Participants will be expected to join in actively in the discussion, so we look forward to seeing you!
