> Dear all,
> Please find below a short summary record of yesterday's call, discussing a
> theme for a BPF related to cybersecurity. The Secretariat will create a new
> dedicated list, merging the lists used for last year's BPFs on spam and
> CSIRT. All interested MAG members are of course invited to join the new
> list!

> 1.     On 24 May 2016 the IGF Secretariat organised a call to discuss the
> 2016 IGF Best Practice Forum (BPF) on cybersecurity. The invitation went
> out to the lists of last year’s BPFs on CSIRT and spam as well as the MAG
> list. Purpose of the call was to work towards selecting a specific
> cybersecurity related theme/topic to focus on in 2016 and to discuss the
> best way forward for the work, building upon last year’s work. The webex
> recording of the meeting can be accessed here:
> https://intgovforum.webex.com/intgovforum/ldr.php?RCID=be20af46ad7b17990e0b6e03cae3c6ec
> 2.     Meeting participants were briefed that during the April IMAG
> meeting, there was agreement that a 2016 BPF would be carried out on a
> cybersecurity related topic/theme. The MAG meeting also acknowledged that
> the WSIS +10 review process has produced an outcome document with a strong
> focus on "building confidence and security in the use of information and
> communications technologies", making an IGF BPF related to cybersecurity
> even more relevant.
> 3.     There was a short briefing on some of the recommendations for
> future work stemming from the CSIRTs and SPAM BPFs. The majority of the
> meeting then focused on how the 2016 BPF work on cybersecurity could be
> carried out in the most effective way and ideas for a specific theme/focus
> for the work.
> 4.     There was general agreement that it would be useful if the work of
> the BPF could take a long-term view, given the depth of ongoing discussions
> around cybersecurity and the new 10-year mandate for the IGF. Participants
> also agreed that choosing a topic which lent itself to the multistakeholder
> nature of the IGF, in which participants from all stakeholder groups come
> together to talk about common issues and challenges, would be ideal. There
> was also agreement that increased efforts should be made to leverage the
> discussions taking place at National and Regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) in
> the work of the BPF, by seeing how the work of the BPF could feed into the
> NRIs, and vice-versa.
> 5.     Some topics that were suggested included, but were not limited to,
> DNSSEC, DNS abuse, critical success factors in cybersecurity, responsible
> disclosure, tools for prevention, privacy, BCP38 – protocol that helps
> mitigate DDoS, enforcement, critical success factors and education and
> awareness.
> 6.     An emerging consensus amongst participants was that a theme that
> focused on collaboration and cooperation amongst all actors working in the
> cybersecurity field could be ideal. This would also fit the IGF model of
> bringing together diverse actors to focus on common challenges. The BPF
> could then lend itself to increasing cooperation and communication amongst
> the various actors including law enforcement agencies, end-users, content
> providers, CSIRTS, policymakers, etc.
> 7.     There was agreement that further discussion on the theme and
> direction of the work could take place online, and that an additional
> online planning meeting call would help. The Secretariat will follow-up
> with details for such a meeting.
