ICANN to support the Commonwealth Cybersecurity Forum 2015

LONDON, 31 MARCH 2015 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has confirmed that it will support the Commonwealth Cybersecurity Forum 2015 as a platinum sponsor. Organised under the theme “Securing Cyberspace for Social and Economic Development”, the event will take place on 22 – 24 April 2015 in London, United Kingdom.

Cyberspace can be a major contributor to socio-economic development, provided it is safe, secure and resilient. This makes strengthening cybersecurity a priority for all countries, and with the increase in frequency and complexity of cyberthreats, more importance is given to the safety and security of the domain name system which underpins cyberspace.

“We are delighted to partner with the CTO again for this important annual event on cybersecurity. The security, stability and resilience of the Internet is clearly a critical issue for all Internet users, with the Commonwealth ideally placed to play an important role in fostering multi-stakeholder solutions. We look forward to contributing to the upcoming forum this April”, said John Crain, Chief Security, Stability & Resiliency Office, ICANN.

The Commonwealth Cybersecurity Forum 2015 will provide delegates with opportunities to discuss their own national cybersecurity strategies with industry experts, network with implementing agencies and technology solutions providers, and learn about the latest cybersecurity initiatives, whilst exploring other aspects of cybersecurity, including:

  • The cyberthreats landscape
  • National cybersecurity strategies
  • E-commerce and cyberlaws
  • Cyber insurance
  • Protecting intellectual property in cyberspace
  • Critical information infrastructure protection
  • Computer Emergency Response Teams
  • Securing the Internet
  • Big data, Cloud computing and security
