Dear Markus,

Great work. I should have been part of the meeting but I missed it due to
loads of works I have presently. As we progress I'll be more visible in
contributing my ideas etc.

Meanwhile, thanks for the briefing and I'm quite in agreement with the
position of the participants.

Best Regards.

Segun Olugbile

>> carried out in the most effective way and ideas for a specific theme/focus

>> Participants also agreed that choosing a topic which lent itself to the

>> 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
