 Cybersecurity BPF - Call for Inputs Now Open!
 Dear All,
 On behalf of the IGF 2017 Best Practice
 Forum (BPF) on Cybersecurity, we are pleased to inform you
 that the BPF has opened a call for contributions until 15
 September 2017.
 All stakeholders are now invited to
 make their submissions using the questionnaire below.
 This year's BPF work focuses on the
 cybersecurity implications of policies for universal access
 and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - we
 would be grateful for your inputs on these important issues!
 All submission instructions are included in the call details
 below and available on the IGF's website<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/bpf-on-cybersecurity-2017-call-for-contributions>.
 For any questions, please do reach out
 to the Secretariat, BPF lead expert Maarten van Horenbeeck,
 and/or co-facilitators Segun Olugbile and Markus Kummer.
 We look forward to receiving your
 Best regards,
 IGF Secretariat
 BPF on Cybersecurity 2017 - Call for
 All stakeholders are invited to submit
 written contributions addressing the below questions and
 issues to the 2017 IGF<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/lexicon/8>
 on Cybersecurity mailing list (subscribe: https://www.intgovforum.org/mailman/listinfo/bp_cybersec_2016_intgovforum.org<http://www.intgovforum.org/mailman/listinfo/bp_cybersec_2016_intgovforum.org>)
 by 15 September 2017. While it is envisioned that initial
 drafting of the output document will begin on 15 September,
 this should be considered a soft deadline as contributions
 will be welcome after the 15th of September, particularly
 contributions from IGF National and Regional Initiatives
 (NRIs) and from other relevant entities or organisations who
 may be holding meetings relating to cybersecurity prior to
 the IGF annual meeting in December.
 Contributions will then be compiled and
 synthesized by the Secretariat, and further circulated to
 the community for comment and further work towards an output
 document for the BPF to be presented at the 12th IGF in
 Geneva, Switzerland from 18-21 December.
 All individuals and organizations are
 asked to kindly try to keep their contributions to no more
 than 2-3 pages, and are encouraged to include URLs/Links to
 relevant information/examples/best practices as applicable.
 When including specific examples or detailed proposals,
 those may be included as an Appendix to the document. Please
 attach contributions as Word Documents (or other applicable
 non-PDF text).
 During 2015 and 2016, the Policy
 Options for Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s)
 (CENB) activity within the Internet Governance Forum
 identified two major elements:
 ?        Which
 policy options are effective at creating an enabling
 environment, including deploying infrastructure, increasing
 usability, enabling users and ensuring affordability;
 ?        How
 Connecting and Enabling the Next Billion(s) contributes to
 reaching the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
 The Best Practice Forum on
 Cybersecurity realizes that making Internet access more
 universal, and thus it supporting the SDGs, has significant
 cybersecurity implications. Well-developed cybersecurity
 helps contribute to meeting the SDGs. Poor cybersecurity can
 reduce the effectiveness of these technologies, and thus
 limit our opportunities to helping achieve the SDGs.
 BPF participants have conducted an
 initial study of how the policy proposals compiled as part
 of CENB Phase I and II may affect, or be affected by,
 cybersecurity implications.
 As part of this ongoing effort, the IGF
 is now calling for public input to collect additional risks
 and cybersecurity policy recommendations that can help
 mitigate security impacts, and help ensure ICTs and the
 Internet continue to help contribute to achieving the SDGs.

 ?        How does
 good cybersecurity contribute to the growth of and trust in
 ICTs and Internet Technologies, and their ability to support
 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
 ?        How does
 poor cybersecurity hinder the growth of and trust in ICTs
 and Internet Technologies, and their ability to support the
 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
 ?        Assessment
 of the CENB Phase II policy recommendations identified a few
 clear threats. Do you see particular policy options to help
 address, with particular attention to the multi-stakeholder
 environment, the following cybersecurity challenges:
 o        Denial of
 Service attacks and other cybersecurity issues that impact
 the reliability and access to Internet services
 o        Security
 of mobile devices, which are the vehicle of Internet growth
 in many countries, and fulfill critical goals such as
 o        Potential
 abuse by authorities, including surveillance of Internet
 usage, or the use of user-provided data for different
 purposes than intended
 Confidentiality and availability of sensitive information,
 in particular in medical and health services
 o        Online
 abuse and gender-based violence
 o        Security
 risks of shared critical services that support Internet
 access, such as the Domain Name System (DNS), and Internet
 Exchange Point (IXP) communities
 Vulnerabilities in the technologies supporting industrial
 control systems
 o        Use of
 information collected for a particular purpose, being
 repurposed for other, inappropriate purposes. For instance,
 theft of information from smart meters, smart grids and
 Internet of Things devices for competitive reasons, or the
 de-anonymization of improperly anonymized citizen data
 o        The lack
 of Secure Development Processes combined with an immense
 growth in the technologies being created and used on a daily
 Unauthorized access to devices that take an increasing role
 in people?s daily lives
 o        Other:
 describe a cybersecurity issue critical to developing the
 SDGs in ways not listed above relevant to your stakeholder
 community (100 words or less)
 ?        Many
 Internet developments do not happen in a highly coordinated
 way - a technology may be developed in the technical
 community or private sector, and used by other communities
 and interact in unexpected ways. Stakeholders are managing
 This both shows the strength and
 opportunities of ICTs and Internet Technologies, but also
 the potential risks. New technologies may be insufficiently
 secure, resulting in harms when they are deployed:
 conversely we may adopt security requirements or measures
 that prevent the development, deployment, or widespread use
 of technologies that would generate unforeseen benefits.
 Where do you think lies the responsibility of each
 stakeholder community in helping ensure cybersecurity does
 not hinder future Internet development?

 solving and would benefit most from a multi-stakeholder
 approach within this BPF? Should any stakeholders be
