(No.84) How can cooperation and multi-stakeholder collaboration impact the global fight against cybercrime and improve cyber security?
Questions 2, 3, 4, and 5
The workshop will demonstrate the perspectives of relevant ICT stakeholders from different sectors, including private industry, civil society and government. The main focus of the workshop will showcase the progress of the Commonwealth Cybercrime Initiative (CCI) which aims to assist developing countries to strengthen capacity in two ways – by providing access to expertise, resources and tool kits on a cross-Commonwealth basis, as well as through customized, on-the-ground assistance, delivered regionally and nationally to individual countries. The Commonwealth Cybercrime Initiative (CCI) can be seen as a model for international cooperation and multi-stakeholder collaboration. The initiative itself includes stakeholders from government, private industries, and civil society, therefore providing an example on how all can work together to accomplish mutual goals to combat cybercrime. Case studies will be used to illustrate best practice and results of the cooperation with particular emphasis on the Initiative’s first project in Africa. Presentations will be followed by a discussion exploring ways to encourage government take up, awareness, collaboration and cooperation. The discussion may also explore potential avenues to improve the initiative. We will be promoting our workshop at our events preceding the IGF such as the Legal Frameworks for ICTs Workshop, in June 2012, and at ICANN 44 in Prague, among others. We encourage participants at this event to take part in the proceedings remotely and physically if possible.
