Home : Office of the Secretary-General : CSD : New Initiatives Prog. : Critical Network Infrastructures
Background
This workshop was organized as part of the New Initiatives Programme which was launched by Decision 496 of the ITU Council at its 2000 session.

One of the main objectives of the Programme is to advise the Secretary-General, in an informal manner, on new topics of a regulatory, policy or other nature of high current interest which cut across the work of the ITU Sectors, with a view to possible inclusion of these topics in the regular work programme of the Union. This work is reported on annually to the Council.

The topics of the workshops are selected among areas of high current interest by the Secretary-General in consultation with Member States and Sector Members.

Objectives 
The workshop on the topic of "Creating Trust in Critical Network Infrastructures" had a number of specific objectives.

In line with Council Decision 496, the main objective was to inform the Secretary-General on the subject of possible new work items for the Union.

It also aimed at providing a neutral forum for Member States and private sector representatives to discuss the protection of critical network infrastructures from policy, regulatory and technical points of view.

A further aim was to promote the exchange of views and information in this field and to share experiences internationally, resulting in mutual benefits for all parties.
