About the event
In line with paragraph 108 and the Annex of the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society, the ITU invited all WSIS stakeholders interested and involved in the implementation process for building confidence and security in the use of ICTs, to a consultation meeting 15-16 May 2006 at ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the WSIS multi-stakeholder implementation process for WSIS Action Line C5: "Building confidence and security in the use of ICTs".

In accomplishing the agenda for C5 and moving forward on potential  partnership activities for global cybersecurity, the meeting was structured around five main themes to consider, discuss and further promote multi-stakeholder partnerships among governments, the private sector and other stakeholders. These themes are:

  • information sharing of national approaches, good practices and guidelines;
  • developing watch, warning and incident response capabilities;
  • technical standards and industry solutions;
  • harmonizing national legal approaches and international legal coordination;
  • privacy, data and consumer protection.

In addition, the event also looked more closely at how developing countries can be more involved in global cybersecurity activities and initiatives.

The meeting invitation letter, draft agenda and registration form is available on the main WSIS Implementation website.

The meeting was open to all WSIS stakeholders that are interested and involved in the implementation process in the field of building confidence and security in the use of ICTs.
