Symposium objectives

In the context of WTSA-04 and of the mandate and role of the ITU, the objectives of the Cybersecurity Symposium were:
  • To act as an information sharing and networking event
  • To raise awareness of the critical nature of the issues involved, the global nature of the problems and need for international cooperation
  • To highlight the need for standards development in the field
Topics covered at The Cybersecurity Symposium included network architecture, communication protocols, physical transmission media, and telecommunication network infrastructure including design, deployment and maintenance. The event also included sessions on telecommunication policy, practices, regulation, economics, user responsibilities, and the legal framework in which telecommunications services operate.
