IGF 2020 Village Booth #2 Prostasia Foundation

Description: 

If you would like to protect children from sexual abuse while maintaining a free and open Internet, then Prostasia Foundation may be for you. Before we came along, discussion of child protection at the IGF was dominated by groups promoting criminalization and censorship as solutions—but these approaches have failed.

Contrary to popular belief, police and Internet platforms alone simply don't have what it takes to address child sexual abuse in the holistic manner that the problem demands. Since our formation in 2018, we have been shifting the conversation towards an evidence-based primary prevention approach that can prevent child sexual abuse from being committed in the first place.

INSAFE AND INHOPE

Insafe and INHOPE work together through a network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs) across Europe – typically comprising an awareness centre, helpline, hotline and youth panel.

  • National awareness centres focus on raising awareness and understanding of safer internet issues and emerging trends. They run campaigns to empower children, young people, parents, carers and teachers with the skills, knowledge and strategies to stay safe online and take advantage of the opportunities that internet and mobile technology provides.

    Helplines provide information, advice and assistance to children, youth and parents on how to deal with harmful content, harmful contact (such as grooming) and harmful conduct such as (cyberbullying or sexting). Helplines can increasingly be accessed via a variety of means - telephone, email, web forms, Skype, and online chat services.

  • Hotlines exist to allow members of the public to report illegal content anonymously. Reports are then passed on to the appropriate body for action (internet service provider, Law Enforcement Agency in the country or corresponding INHOPE Association Hotline).
  • Youth panels allow young people to express their views and exchange knowledge and experiences concerning their use of online technologies, as well as tips on how to stay safe. They also advise on internet safety and empowerment strategy, help create innovative resources and disseminate eSafety messages to their peers.

IGF 2020 Village Booth #35 Kaspersky

Description: 

Topic of the booth: Increasing trust and accountability in cyberspace: Mutistakeholder best practices.

Background: Digitalization is not an aim in itself, and technology does not have any value unless it serves for the benefit of and in the interests of people and society’s well being. Digitalization should support our values, contribute to prosperity, enable a healthier and longer life, help to achieve climate goals, foster sustainable development, and build a safer world. Digitalization is an enormous chance for all of us: people, society, states, regions and the whole world. However, there are also risks we should be aware of and which should be mitigated. A good way of doing so is to increase transparency and accountability. Through multistakeholder cooperation, we at Kaspersky contribute to building a secure and trusted cyberspace to make sure it remains safe and open for everyone.

Content: Cybersecurity and cybercrime know no boarders. This is a global issue. Thus, we need global solutions. Such solutions can only be developed in partnership and close cooperation. At the booth, three concrete best practices are presented:

1) Global Transparency Initiative (GTI): https://www.kaspersky.com/transparency-center Kaspersky is convinced that the cybersecurity industry needs a global framework for trust and accountability that applies to everyone. The cornerstone of this is transparency. Our industry’s customers and partners need to be able to see what we do and how we do it. We also call to shift the paradigm to where we can not only trust, but also verify. The main way of doing this is through the development of a new framework and mindset – digital trust and digital ethics. Because of this, Kaspersky has developed its Global Transparency Initiative. The GTI provides clear and practical verification and risk mitigation measures to assist its customers and partners in building an optimal security strategy based on proven technology and the principles of digital ethics and trust.

2)‘No More Ransom’ initiative: https://www.nomoreransom.org The No More Ransom website project is a global initiative, which was launched by the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands’ police, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre, Kaspersky and McAfee. The goal is to help victims of ransomware retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay the criminals. The project also aims to educate users about how ransomware works and what countermeasures they can take to effectively prevent infection. Since its launch, the initiative has helped tens of thousands of victims unlock their PCs without paying a ransom. The project now has more than 150 partners, and its website is translated into over 35 languages.

3) Coalition Against Stalkerware: https://stopstalkerware.org The Coalition Against Stalkerware convened in 2019 in order to facilitate communication between those organizations working to combat domestic violence and the security community. The founding organizations have committed to fighting domestic violence, stalking and harassment by addressing the use of stalkerware and raising public awareness about this issue.

Contribution to the IGF 2020 thematic tracts, policy questions and SDGs: The booth covers especially three of the four thematic tracks of IGF: data, trust and inclusion. Beneath that, it highlights concrete multistakeholder activities that are of value for citizens, society, states and the global community. At the booth, the visitors will get the chance to receive information about the three initiatives, discuss their aims, possible future activities, and how they might contribute to and/or may benefit from these initiatives. Furthermore, many subtopics and policy questions of IGF can be discussed, e.g.: • How to build trust across institutions, stakeholders and online tools and services? • How to develop a global framework for verifiable trust and transparency in cyberspace? • How can we overcome increasing fragmentation in cyberspace at national, regional and global levels? • Which policy measures have to be taken for the protection, prevention and defense against cyberthreats? • How to build trust for a successful digital economy?

Beneath that, the booth covers six of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): • GOAL 4: Quality Education • Goal 5: Gender Equality • GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth • GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure • Goal 10: Reduce Inequalities • GOAL 17: Partnerships for the Goals

Description: 

---------------------- Goal of the Open Forum ----------------------

The Booth aims at:

1. Presenting Global Citizens’ Dialogue on the Future of Internet and its results.
2. Permitting stakeholder to engage with the results and consider them in their own organization.

----------- Background: Internet Governance with and for the Citizens -----------

Humanity deserves and asks for better governance. Both citizens and decision-makers are ready to experiment with new approaches. Decisions taken on behalf of 7+ billion human beings require to augment the traditional expertise with the vision and experience of ordinary citizens that will enrich, legitimize, and strengthen the decisions. New forms of political non-partisan dialogue between citizens, decision-makers and experts are one of the most promising solutions to improve governance towards a more inclusive, more trustful, and less divided society, at all levels, from local to global. By relying on such processes, decisions become more in tune with the complexity of our age, more legitimate and more sustainable. Decision-makers gain in legitimacy, insights, and transparency. Citizens enter the realm of complexity of decision making and get the feeling of being respected and considered by the political sphere. Both are strengthened by this unique interaction.
The recent global COVID crisis has shown that Internet and they way we govern it has an impact on all humanity. There is a profound need to discuss its future with everyone.

----------------- Bringing Citizens into Internet Governance -----------------------------------

The Global Citizens’ Dialogue on the future of Internet (https://www.wetheinternet.org) aims at addressing core questions of the future of Internet with ordinary citizens and stakeholder around the world. It supports the decision-making process on the future of this common good of Humanity. In 2018 and 2019, and with the support of a global coalition of partners, we prepared and tested the approach in 17 Dialogues around the world. In 2020, it’s time to scale the process:
1. Global Coalition: We will consolidate and extend the coalition and work with the Advisory Board, the Scientific committee and the community in order to design the dialogues and how they will interact with policy making.
2. Deliberation Day: Together with a group of 60+ national partners we will implement a series of at least 50 Citizens’ Dialogues on October 10th, 2020. Citizens will address following topics: Internet and me, Building a strong Digital Identity, shaping the digital public sphere, governing artificial intelligence. They will also work on a national topic and formulate joint recommendations with stakeholder of their country. National partners will receive a comprehensive capacity building to ensure a high quality of the process.
3. Stakeholder Dialogue on Internet Governance: In order to use synergies and the window of opportunity opened by the Report of the High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, we will roll-out a Stakeholder Dialogue in parallel to the Citizens’ Dialogues. These will gather local groups of stakeholders that will work on recommendations 5a/b of the Report and produce recommendations for implementation to be submitted to the UN. The dialogues will take place online in June and face-to-face in October.
4. Impact: From Summer on, we will feed the findings into policy discussions before, during and after IGF 2020. At European Level, the German Presidency of the Council will give a major opportunity to bring the voices of Citizens into the policy discussion. At global level, the UN week in September and the activities around the 75th Anniversary of the UN will open a global stage for impact.

IGF 2020 Village Booth #58 Learn Internet Governance

Description: 

We plan to share the our information about the resources that we share. Our collaborative Community Development Program Learn Internet Governance Program is a Dynamic platform of getting information which focuses in open knowledge sharing method. During the IGF 2020 we want to share our experience and help promote the concept to further enlarge the group of internet leaders with the possibilities of what can be done at individual level. Especially in least developed and developing nations where there is crisis of funding this concept can help people to network and do something credible in terms of spreading the awareness and knowledge that they have. They can use the available resources in utilizing their own knowledge and network to create a better means of communication channel that can empower the youths and share knowledge at local level without the support of any funding. It can further multiply and can be a very effecting means of capacity building as well.
Right now with Learn IG, we have a simple website and forum for communication and collaboration. We are further planning to network and grow in terms of how and what can be done. As today in most parts of the world, it is very costly to participate in forums like IGF and other IG awareness course these kinds of informational tool can be handy for communication and information dissemination. Our main focus are:

1. To promote easy and effective mean of communication
2. To promote next generation leadership
3. To build network among internet leaders

IGF 2020 Village Booth #73 Sensio.Group

Description: 

At Sensio Network we work on the integrated solution to simplify publishing, licensing and copyright of digital assets for everyone who shares content online. We create Hybrid Distributed Digital Identities managed by users (self-sovereign DIDs) that link all the copyrights over the content she/he creates and shares on the Internet.

By putting an individual, not a platform in charge of the content we work towards establishing the new standards for the open and fair market for digital creatives. Besides, verifiable ownership statements Sensio creates can solve the problem of attribution, verify the legitimacy of content and its source, and limit the spread of fake news.

We would like to showcase our open-source project and educate stakeholders about the potential of using Self-Sovereign Identities in policing and managing user-generated content on the Internet, as well as collect the feedback on how the solution can be improved in order to better suit the needs of different stakeholder groups.
