The adoption of (Internet) standards and best practices is a topic of much interest in improving cyber security and deterring cyber crime. In order for either standards or best practices to be effective, they must both be developed and be adopted. Achieving wide-scale adoption can be slow, as it requires building awareness and gaining consensus on practices. One key issue is who bears the responsibility for the implementation of standards and best practices. Another issue is the effect of (non-) adoption on Internet security.

In The Netherlands, standards and best-practice implementation is part of the Dutch government's medium-term vision for telecommunication, media and Internet. This discussion process is supported by organisations like SIDN, NLnet Labs, RIPE NCC, SURFnet; key players with global impact.

Adoption of standards and best practices promoting cybersecurity is a multi national topic. NLIGF proposes to organise a paneldiscussion on this issue, addressing it from a global scope. Topics include the stakeholders and bodies that can or should develop standards and best practices, cooperation between these bodies and the process of deciding which issues to prioritize. The roles of consumers, industry, government in (non-)adoption is looked at, as well as the cost allocation of implementation. The panel will also consider how to ensure that developing nations can contribute to and take advantage of standards and best practices for cybersecurity and discuss new partnerships. Panellists range as wide as the topics are. The respective points of view of the panellists are part of this proposal.
