IG Weekly Brief : UN on cyber disarmament; Cyber geopolitics (U.S-UKRAINE)"Safer Internt Day" (UNICEF, ENISA); Taxation in digital economy; New Jersey enact own net neutrality regul

SUMMARY

This week, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is to launch a major push for disarmament talks covering everything from nuclear and cyber war to small arms, officials and experts told Reuters.
On cyber geopolitics, The U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Ukraine Cybersecurity Cooperation Act of 2017, championed by U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and fellow Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Brendan Boyle, on a 404-3 vote.
On "Safer Internt Day", The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) revealed today that more than 175,000 children go online for the first time every day tapping into all the great opportunities the Internet has to offer, but facing grave risks. Also, ENISA publishes a report providing organisations with practical tools and guidance to develop and maintain an internal cybersecurity culture.

On net neutrality, following a vote by the FCC last month to repeal existing net neutrality protections and allow ISPs to regulate themselves, some states are enacting legislation of their own to ensure a level playing field. New Jersey is the latest to do so, with its Governor Phil Murphy signing an executive order mandating that ISPs follow net neutrality rules if they want to do business with state agencies.

On digital economy, France and Germany intensified calls on Wednesday for U.S. technology giants to pay more tax in the European Union, with Paris saying the new bill could amount to billions of euros.

On domain name, ICANN’s board has passed a resolution confirming that it will not delegate the .mail, .home and .corp strings as part of 2012 round of new top level domain name expansion, and has authorized a full refund for companies that applied for these strings.

On fake news, hate speech, Twitter left hundreds of russian propoganda videos, with millions of views, on its videos platform Vine for months after it should have known they were posted by a Kremlin-linked troll group.

On infrastructure, European wireless network for airline passengers will be launched by the end of June, yesterday companies working on the project said to Reuters.
