trustmeThe Internet has made it easier than ever for entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes to participate in the global marketplace. But they face a number of public policy challenges related to cybersecurity, privacy, and trade. Chief among them is how to establish trust across far flung geographies and cultures. How can security experts, businesses, governments, and policy makers meet the complex tasks necessary to maintain the trust needed to ensure the future of global innovation – the lifeblood of economic growth?

Join our distinguished panel for a robust conversation that will cover:

  • What can the private sector do to improve trust in the global digital marketplace?
  • How can public policy and trade policy set clear rules of the road to help businesses and entrepreneurs succeed globally?
  • What can be done when conflicting national laws apply to a global service? Who has jurisdiction?
  • What are the basics of security, privacy, and copyright policy that businesses need to know?

Governments and Internet Governance

Despite their long experience in global and domestic governance, policymakers from many nations struggle to find their way in Internet governance. Although policymakers can regulate the Internet within their borders and are the only actors at venues such as the UN and the WTO,  some officials are uncomfortable with venues such as the IGF, ICANN, or IETF,  where governments are just one of many stakeholder groups. Meanwhile,  many people in the Internet policy community look cautiously on increased participation by governments in the technical infrastructure and governance bodies that underpin the Internet.  This event examines several different governmental perspectives on Internet governance. 


Amr Aljowaily, Minister Plenipotentiary at Permanent Mission of Egypt to the United Nations in NY

Veni Markowski, Internet Society, Bulgaria

David Satola, Lead ITC Counsel at The World Bank

Carolina Debs, First Secretary, Science and Technology Section, The Embassy of Brazil
