RÉSUMÉ

Cette semaine, la deuxième Conférence sur Internet et la juridiction internationale s'est tenue à Ottawa.

Au sujet des cyber-menaces américano-russes, le président russe a annoncé que son pays avait développé de nouvelles armes nucléaires stratégiques invincibles. En fait, un haut responsable de l'OTAN a averti jeudi que la Russie "avait démontré qu'elle avait le potentiel d'être un acteur de premier rang dans la cyberguerre".

En Europe, le président lituanien a appelé à une infrastructure «cyber-Schengen» pour lutter contre la cybercriminalité et les cyberattaques.

En Chine, des rapports indiquent que les autorités chinoises ont censuré la lettre "N" de l'Internet chinois pendant au moins une journée pour bloquer les critiques en ligne contre le président. Concernant l'infrastructure 5G, la Commission européenne a appelé mercredi les Etats membres de l'Union européenne à aller de l'avant et à consolider la toute dernière génération de réseaux de téléphonie mobile 5G pour éviter d'être laissés en rade par la concurrence. En outre, l'Union européenne a donné à Google, à YouTube, à Facebook, à Twitter et à d'autres sociétés Internet trois mois pour la suppression des contenus extrémistes.

"Sur le Droit d'être oublié", Google affirme avoir reçu plus de 650 000 demandes de suppression de certains sites de ses résultats de recherche depuis qu'un tribunal européen a ordonné à l'entreprise d'autoriser les Européens à "s'oublier" en 2014.

GSMA et la Société pour l'attribution de noms et de numéros Internet (ICANN) ont annoncé la signature d'un protocole d'accord au Mobile World Congress pour sensibiliser le public aux questions de gouvernance d'Internet.

Sur le cryptage, Brian Acton, co-fondateur de WhatsApp, investit 50 millions de dollars dans Signal, dans le but de promouvoir la messagerie cryptée et de la rendre plus opérationnelle.
