In this workshop IS3C, Internet Standards Security and Safety Coalition, presents the results of its work of the past year.


WG 1 Security by design – Internet of Things presents the outcomes of an international comparison of legislative texts at the national or supra-national level, 22 in all. Also labelling schemes on IoT security have been compared. This leads to a report, expected January 2023, containing best practices and recommendations. A public consultation of the draft report will be opened soon.


WG 2 Education & skills presents its report ‘Closing the gap between the needs of the cybersecurity industry and the skills of tertiary education graduates’. The report reflects the research conducted this year and presents seven recommendations to the world on how to close this gap.


WG 6, Data governance and security presents its initial outcomes of the research currently conducted, which compares data governance legislation around the world. The report which is expected in the winter of 2023 will contain best practices and recommendations for UNDESA to start a deployment programme on.


WGs 3, 5 and 9 announce the start of their work after the IGF. These bodies of work see to the following topics: (3) procurement and supply chain management and the deployment of internet standards; (5) a priority list of most urgent standards and best practices and a repository with a list containing a total overview; (9) quantum computing and post-quantum encryption.
