This publication addresses the new and emerging challenges of the Information Society, notably in building confidence and trust in the use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs). The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), a UN Summit held in two phases in Geneva in 2003 and Tunis in 2005, entrusted ITU with the mandate to coordinate the efforts of all stakeholders in this fi eld. The ITU has launched a major new initiative, the Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA), as a global framework for cooperation aimed at proposing strategies for solutions to enhance confi dence and security in the Information Society. It will build on existing national and regional initiatives to avoid duplication of work and encourage collaboration amongst all relevant partners in fi ve main work areas: legal measures, technical and procedural measures, organizational structures, capacity-building and international cooperation.
