RESUME

Cette semaine, la cyberpolitique est au coeur de l'actualité sur la gouvernance internet avec les autorités russes qui auraient demandés l'aide de la Chine pour une plus grande maîtrise de l'information sur l'Internet mais aussi Microsoft qui accepte l'invitation du Conseil de sécurité de l'ONU pour se prononcer sur un débat spécial concernant le terrorisme numérique.
Quant à la régulation d'Internet en Europe, le règlement sur la protection des données (GDPR) est publié au Journal officiel de l'Union européenne le 04 mai, ce qui signifie qu'on a jusqu'au 25 mai 2018 pour conformer les activités de traitement de données aux exigences de GDPR nouvellement adoptées. Par ailleurs, la Commission européenne introduit le plafond des frais d'itinérance avant l'abolition complète des frais en Juin 2017. A propos de la neutralité du net; dans une lettre collective, 72 organisations de plus de 31 pays des cinq continents, appellent les régulateurs européens des télécommunications à soutenir la neutralité du Net dans leurs négociations en cours concernant sur le futur d'Internet. En ce qui concerne les noms de domaine, 2020 sera probablement l'année de lancement de la seconde round des demandes de nouveaux gTLD", selon Akram Attalah, de l'ICANN.
