Regional Workshop on Frameworks for Cybersecurity and Critical Information Infrastructure Protection

Hanoi, Vietnam
28-31 August 2007

Event Description

Our societies are increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies (ICT) networked around the globe. These networks are responsible for a growing share of national wealth, and they provide potential for greater prosperity. However, threats have emerged that can seriously damage critical network infrastructures. To address these threats and protect these infrastructures, each country needs a comprehensive action plan that addresses technical, legal and policy issues, combined with regional and international cooperation.

In Resolution 130 (Antalya, 2006), ITU was requested to give high priority to building confidence and security in the use of information and communication technologies.

This workshop, one in a series of regional events jointly organized by ITU-D and ITU-T, aimed to:

Furthermore, Plenipotentiary Conference 2006 Resolution 123 and outcomes from the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly, Florianópolis, 2004 (WTSA-04 ) and World Telecommunication Development Conference, Doha, 2006 (WTDC-06) requested the Sectors to undertake initiatives to bridge the standardization gap between developed and developing countries and strengthen the collaboration between ITU-T and ITU-D respectively.

This workshop responded to this request as it provided a review of ITU-T Recommendations and activities relating to cybersecurity and informs participants on related ITU-D Study Group activities.

The workshop was targeted at policy makers / regulators / service providers / operators, who are or would be involved in setting up or are implementing related frameworks in their country. It will benefit:

  • Information and communication policy makers from ministries and government departments;
  • Departments/Institutions dealing with cybersecurity policies and legislation; and
  • Representatives from operators, manufacturers, service providers, industry and consumer associations that need to understand develop and implement related solutions.

See the meeting invitation for detailed information about workshop and key contact points.
