RÉSUMÉ

 

Cette semaine, Cuba a remis une note de protestation à l'ambassadeur américain à La Havane à propos de la création par l'administration Trump d'un groupe de travail sur l'Internet Cubain.
Les États-Unis cherchent à établir un réseau sans fil 5G centralisé à travers le pays dans trois ans. Cette proposition de l'administration Trump de construire des réseaux 5G financés par des fonds publics "finira en catastrophe", a averti le plus haut régulateur des télécommunications de l'UE, exhortant l'Europe à accélérer ses projets de réseaux Internet rapides.
En Russie, plus de la moitié des citoyens approuvent un internet séparé pour le bloc économique des BRICS, affirmant que l'idée pourrait renforcer la sécurité des données personnelles des utilisateurs et aider à contrer la propagande.
En ce qui concerne la protection des données, le responsable d'une agence gouvernementale américaine a mis en garde contre les modifications du service de recherche internet Whois afin de se conformer au futur règlement général sur la protection des données de l'UE (GDPR). Par ailleurs, l'autorité indépendante de la protection des données de l'Union européenne déclare que le Royaume-Uni devrait rester un partenaire stratégique dans la protection des données après le Brexit
En Chine, la population en ligne, la plus importante au monde, a atteint 772 millions à la fin de l'année dernière. 40,74 millions de nouvelles connexions ayant été ajoutées. Les nouvelles connexions ont augmenté de 5,6% par rapport à 2016, selon un rapport publié par le Centre d'information du réseau Internet chinois (CNNIC). En outre, la Chine commencera à bloquer les fournisseurs étrangers de réseaux privés virtuels (VPN) utilisés pour contourner son grand pare-feu de la censure gouvernementale à la fin du mois de mars, ont rapporté les médias officiels.
Mercredi, la société mère de Google a présenté Chronicle et l'a décrit comme une «nouvelle entreprise indépendante au sein d'Alphabet qui se consacre à aider les entreprises à détecter et arrêter les cyberattaques avant qu'elles ne causent des dommages». En outre, Alphabet serait en pourparlers avec la société pétrolière nationale d'Arabie saoudite, Aramco, sur la construction d'un "hub technologique" au Moyen-Orient.
Sur la neutralité du net, la Californie vient de rejoindre New York et le Montana pour résister à l'abrogation de la neutralité du net par la Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Les législateurs ont présenté deux projets de loi au Sénat de l'État de Californie qui forceraient les fournisseurs de services à continuer de traiter toutes les données sur Internet de la même manière, sans discrimination sur les contenus.

SUMMARY
 
This week, Cuba handed a note of protest to the top US diplomat in Havana on Wednesday (Jan 31) over the Trump administration's creation of a Cuba Internet Task Force that it said was an attempt to violate its sovereignty.
The United States federal government is said to be looking to build a centralized 5G wireless network across the country within three years. This proposal from the Trump administration to build public-funded 5G networks will “end in disaster”, the EU’s top telecoms regulator has warned, urging Europe to speed up plans for its own fast internet networks.
In Russia, more than half of citizens approve of a separate internet for the BRICS economic bloc, saying that the idea could boost the security of users’ personal data and help counter hostile propaganda.
On data protection, the head of a US government agency has warned against changes to the Whois internet lookup service in order to comply with the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Besides, Head of European Union’s independent data protection authority says UK is likely to remain a strategic partner in data protection after Brexit
In china, online population, the largest in the world, has touched 772 million at the end of last year as 40.74 million new connections were added. The new connections went up by 5.6 per cent compared to 2016, a report released by China's China Internet Network Information Centre (CNNIC) said. Also, China will begin blocking overseas providers of virtual private networks (VPN) used to circumvent its Great Firewall of government censorship at the end of March, official media reported.
On Wednesday, Google's parent company introduced Chronicle and described it in as a "new independent business within Alphabet that's dedicated to helping companies find and stop cyber attacks before they cause harm." Also, Alphabet is reportedly in talks with Saudi Arabia's state-owned oil company Aramco about building a "tech hub" in the Middle East.
On net neutrality, California has just joined New York and Montana in resisting the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) repeal of net neutrality. Lawmakers introduced two bills to the California State Senate that would force service providers to continue treating all data on the internet the same way, without discriminating content.
On event, we note the 5th meeting of the UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation in Geneva
