‘Embracing Internet Security’ was the theme for the 2nd Regulatory Internet Symposium held on 20 October in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
APNIC’s Kleé Aiken was invited to participate at the event, which included presentations and discussions surrounding security and privacy issues associated with social media, and the role and importance of establishing national Cyber Emergency Response Teams (CERTs).
Discussion on the latter topic led to the formation of a Working Group which will discuss the requirements of establishing a national CERT in Vanuatu, and includes representatives from local organizations, the government and ISPs. View a recording of the Symposium.
- During the Symposium, Kleé provided a presentation on cybersecurity and the role of CERTs and Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs).
- Kleé was also a part of a panel session discussing the importance and benefits of implementing a national CERT compared to relying on a regional CERT, in the wake of the launch of Tonga’s national CERT.
The Outcome Report from the Symposium is now available at the TRR website.
