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.
