Today the Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC) to the OECD published the fifth edition of its newsletter at:

http://www.internetac.org/archives/category/newsletter

The ITAC was created in 2009 following the OECD's Seoul Ministerial with the objective to provide Internet technical and policy expertise to the work of the OECD on Internet-related issues. This informal group is coordinated by the Internet Society and currently counts 28 members active in domains such as open Internet/Web standards development, interconnection, IP addressing, security or privacy.

The goal of the ITAC newsletter is to provide concrete illustrations and practices of the evolving multistakeholder model of Internet policy development, and to create opportunities for new partnerships. The publication of this fifth newsletter was coordinated by my colleagues Constance Bommelaer and Nicolas Siedler and includes these articles:

  • Editorial: On the road to Mexico 2016 (from Internet Society)
  • Interview of Ambassador Dionisio Pérez-Jácome Frisione, Mexico's Permanent Representative to the OECD
  • New Internet (and IoT) Era and the Protection of Economic and Social Activities  (from IEEE)
  • Consent as a critical component for Trust in the Growth of the Digital Economy (from Kantara Initiative)
  • Investigating Whether Internet Paths Stay Within Borders (from RIPE NCC)
  • United we stand: Protecting against cyber threats with standards for sharing (from OASIS)

ITAC provides an avenue for new technical insights to contribute to the work of the OECD. ITAC is open to any Internet technical and research organization that meets the membership criteria listed in the Committee's Charter.

ITAC encourages Policymakers, members of Civil Society and Businesses to submit queries regarding any of the ITAC work to Questions@internetac.org

If your organization is interested in joining ITAC and contributing with technically-informed advice to the OECD's development of Internet-related policies, you can visit the website, http://www.internetac.org, to read the "Criteria for Membership" in ITAC's Charter (Section III).
