Event Description

Another busy month for digital politics is coming to an end. Many developments have taken place. In preparation for the WSIS+10 High-Level Event in New York, the selection process of civil society delegates has accelerated. In the privacy and data protection area, the Council of the European Union at the meeting of ministers of justice agreed on a proposal for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been heavily criticised by human rights groups, who consider this a step back for privacy.

In cybersecurity, we have observed a continuation of accusations of mutual hacking by states - Russia and China hold the Snowden files, while China was accused of a breach of federal personal data in the USA. Computer security companies revealed the resurrection of the infamous Duqu, probably the most advanced piece of malware which performs sophisticated intrusion into networks. In the net neutrality debate, a possible trade-off was reached in the EU: giving up net neutrality in return for putting an end to roaming charges. The ongoing ICANN meeting in Buenos Aires should hint whether we are coming closer to a IANA transition agreement soon.

The Internet governance in June 2015 webinar briefing will take place on Tuesday, 30th June, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST). The webinar briefing takes place online, but you can also join in situ at 7 bis Avenue de la Paix, Geneva (WMO building, 2nd floor). To join, please fill in the registration form.
