Dear colleagues,

Like many professionals around the world, recent events have affected your everyday practices and routines. You might even wish there was a fast forward button to skip 2020.

One or more of the following may have happened to you:

* Working from home is the new normal
* Someone you know has lost all or part of their income
* Your children or friend’s children have had to stop going to school

You have considered making a sacrifice to the gods of the Internet (ok — maybe not). You may also have realised that perhaps those people who were pushing for Internet access as a human right weren’t so wrong after all - the Internet is no longer a nice-to-have. It’s an essential requirement for survival in the 21st century.

Join us as we discuss critical internet infrastructure. We will specifically focus on:

* What is critical Internet infrastructure?
* How do Black Swan events, e.g. pandemics, affect critical Internet infrastructure?
* How are critical infrastructure holding up around the world during this COVID-19 pandemic?
* How do we determine and plug the critical infrastructure deficits at organisational and national levels?
