IGF Theme(s) for workshop: Security, Openness and Privacy
Main theme question address by workshop: Question 2
Concise description of the proposed workshop:
The proposed workshop will look at the various legal frameworks, regulations and principles impacting cyber security over the Internet and also those pertaining to privacy, in the digital/mobile ecosystem. The traditional conflict that has been perceived between cyber security on the one hand and privacy on the other hand, in the digital age will be examined. The coming of mobiles have further poised new challenges in this direction. Cyber security is important for ensuring the stability and robustness of the Internet, while privacy is the life blood of individual freedoms in the digital age. States have to come up with delicate balances to balance both the requirements of cyber security as also privacy. How can the progress of Internet governance be more boosted using cyber security and privacy as fundamental pillars of the edifice? What risks does cyber security and privacy pose to Internet in the context of Internet fragmentation? Does the use of cloud computing in any case impact the security of networks as also the stability? How can security and privacy coexist in the cloud computing era and yet contribute to the growth of Internet governance? These and other similar questions would be proposed to be discussed in the proposed workshop.
