About the event

The 2nd WSIS Action Line C5 facilitation meeting was held 14-15 May 2007 at ITU Headquarters (Room C) in Geneva, Switzerland from 9:30-17:30 on both days.

A special lunch session briefing on the Convention on Cybercrime organized by the Council of Europe took place on the 15th from 13:30–15:00.

The meeting was open to all stakeholders and  held in conjunction with a cluster of events 14-25 May surrounding World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (May 17th).

Based on the first facilitation meeting held in May 2006, work programmes in three focus areas have been initiated, in addition

to ongoing activities in the area of spam and related threats.
  • Focus Area 1 (National Strategies) involves the development of a generic model framework or toolkit that national policy-makers could use to develop and implement a national cybersecurity programme.
  • Focus Area 2 (Legal Frameworks) considers capacity-building on the harmonization of cybercrime legislation, the Council of Europe's Convention on Cybercrime, and enforcement.
  • Focus Area 3 (Watch, Warning and Incident Response) looks at information-sharing of best practices on developing watch, warning and incident response capabilities.
  • Focus Area 4 is dedicated to spam and related threats.

The guiding themes for this second facilitation meeting were: progress by stakeholders in implementation activities in these focus areas, consideration of future framework discussions to improve international cooperation and coordination in the above domains as well as future work plans.
