expert analysisInternet Society Hosted Workshop

Internet security is increasingly important – and increasingly linked to our economic and social prosperity. A secure and resilient network is vital to continuing our existing operations and growing our businesses. With so much interconnection and interdependency on the global Internet, we must manage risks collaboratively to achieve effective security for everyone.

    In this session, experts from the Internet Society and major organizations will describe three main         areas of Internet security:


    *DNS security – To prevent hackers from taking over servers and website traffic, we must introduce     security and authentication into the domain name system.

    *Email security – To protect your organization’s sensitive, private, and valuable information, we     must      introduce secure email technologies.

    *Network security- Organisations of all sizes must protect the usability, reliability, integrity, and     safety of their networks and data to protect against routing and misconfiguration and attacks,     IP-spoofing, DDoS attacks, etc.


    You will learn the current state of Internet security and have all of your questions answered by security      experts during this informative and interactive session. Internet security is critical to the future of your     business – don’t get left behind and vulnerable.


    Andrei Robachevsky, Technology Programme Manager, Internet Society
