This week, the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), issued a notice requesting “comments and recommendations from all interested stakeholders on its international Internet policy priorities for 2018 and beyond.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday there were no plans to shut down social media sites or limit internet freedoms in Russia, and that a “civilized” solution was needed to make the internet safer.
Thursday’s meeting of NATO defense ministers has concluded, with an agreement to set up a Cyber Operations Centre, as part of the new Command Structure, and integrate sovereign cyber effects into alliance operations and missions.
The European Commission proposed on Wednesday to spend 9.2 billion euros (10.83 billion U.S. dollars) on the European Union's (EU) first digital program to prioritize investments in supercomputers and artificial intelligence (AI).
New European copyright laws could outlaw memes on the internet, campaigners have claimed. On data protection, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has fined the British and Foreign Bible Society £100,000 after cyber hackers gained access to more than 400,000 supporters’ personal data. On net neutrality, Senate Democrats are urging Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote on a bill that would restore the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality rules.
