Friends, the second issue of the Digital Watch newsletter is out. The newsletter provides updates on Internet governance and digital policy developments, with a special focus on Geneva. Here's a break-down of the contents of this month's newsletter:
- The top digital policy developments related to human rights, cybersecurity, and Internet governance on page 1.
- The main events and developments in Geneva, on page 2.
- The Actors in Internet governance section, on page 3, features the Internet Society, and Mexican diplomat Maria Victoria Romero Caballero, who received the Geneva Internet Platform’s first award to a leading digital diplomat.
- A comprehensive digest of developments in digital politics is on pages 4-5: from cybersecurity to online privacy and data protection, from net neutrality to the IANA transition process.
- The WSIS+10 overall review process is our issue in focus on pages 6-7. What are the main updates so far? The timeline includes major events and the process of drafting resolutions leading up the high-level meeting in December.
- After watching many demonstrations of verbal dexterity in the digital policy events in May and June (WSIS Forum, CSTD, WSIS+10, ICANN), and inspired by the wonderful Geneva Perception team's cookbook on International Geneva, our speech cooks have come up with a recipe for writing a digital policy speech, on page 8, guaranteed to satisfy all appetites and keep your audience coming back for more. Enrich this recipe with your suggestions.
