WS43: Multi-Stakeholder Approaches to Cybersecurity Awareness

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What makes protecting the public from cybersecurity risks such a challenge for governments, private sector and civil society? The governance frameworks and diversity of interest that comprise the Internet infrastructure are complex and no one institution, agency or organization can solve these issues on their own and every digital citizen plays a role in protecting themselves and the Internet. The sheer breadth and depth of these issues can be daunting because of the ever-changing nature of the threats. As a result, no one entity has “the answer.”

The session will discuss the multistakeholder approach to addressing cybersecurity issues: Why should a multistakeholder approach be used and what are the elements of a successful public private governance model. The damage done to the culture of trust that had been developing among governments, private sector and civil society - key players in cyber security and the question becomes - Can multistakeholder efforts continue to succeed in a post Snowden World?

These questions lend themselves to a more interactive session with lots of discussion.

The anticipated participants, NCSA, NorSIS and DSCI will add perspectives of successful programs from both the developing and developed worlds. Microsoft will add the private-sector perspective and government representatives from India and Australia will share their unique insights.

Our goal for this workshop is to have industry, governments and civil society come together in countries where the multistakeholder approach is not present and look at ways to replicate and implement these program. Agenda is as follows:


·Two Brief Scene Setting Presentations

·Short Responses from Discussant

·Audience Q&A/Discussion
