2Holistic Policy Framework on ICTs /

Multidisciplinary Internet Governance
A multidisciplinary framework for policymaking in the digital age [NB this is a holding title]Group 2 There are many different approaches to Internet governance but, as we heard from the UN Secretary-General at IGF 2018, there are challenges to avoid working in silos and to create policy-making approaches that are truly multidisciplinary and involve a full range of perspectives and actors.Ben Wallis, Ananda Khanal, Veni Markovski, Jennfier Chung, Maria Paz Canales

7Cross-Cutting Issue: JurisdictionWhat should be the perspectives, and which stakeholders and disciplines need to be considered? What ideas and examples can we look to to help policymakers? Indeed, beyond public policy, what lessons from the private sector policymaking can be used? Companies are looking at how to take account of perspectives and, in some cases, include external stakeholders, in their decision-making.

9Consolidated Session on Major Policy ProposalsThis Main Session will look at a range of recommendations and case studies from different cultures and regions, which could potentially illustrate some best practices to create more multidisciplinary approaches to Internet governance policy-making.

Free flow of data and ICT products in a multipolar world

Alternative:
Free flow of data and ICT products and services in a digitally connected world
Group 3 [Short Description]

This is a crucial point in time where data flows and ICT products are subject to scrutiny and international trade is subject to discussion. Countries all over the world have begun to regulate on the free flow of data and free trade. This main session should shed light on the following questions:

- How can we ensure free flow of data and ICT goods and services in an interconnected world?
- What is the role of international bodies like WTO, OECD, WIPO, UNCTAD and others?
- What are the applicable rules?
- Are there any conflicts of laws (extraterritorial effects of national actions) and how to solve them?
- What are the roles of bilateral or plurilateral trade agreements?
- How to make sure the implementation of international rules is achieved?

8Cross-Cutting Issue: IoT-I.o.T.: Interconnection of everything - how to guarantee security-Group 5Securing the Interconnection of everything

This session will identify the challenges throughout complete process of IOT service delivery – from the infrastructure to the application layer. Stakeholders from each service delivery layer area will discuss the unique solutions and challenges at their layer and the complexities of maintaining security moving through layers. The panel will use case studies (eg, the Dyn IoT DDoS attack) to demonstrate the unique security challenges known and emerging, including, vulnerabilities with device software, protocols for securing devices, updating hardware and software, data aggregation, utilizing standards and best practices to securely register and manage devices. The panel will also share examples of new and emerging technologies that could offer greater security.

Policy questions:
- Can governments obtain data from service providers or device manufacturers?
- Who is responsible for educating consumers on how to secure and update their devices?
- How frequently should devices be updated? Are the automatic or the responsibility of the consumer?
- What is the process for securing or disabling orphaned technologies?
- Should data management be offered to the user to control all collection, broadcast and storage of their information?
