IPv6, Security, and More at IGF This Week

By Megan KruseFormer Director, Advocacy and Communications

igf16logoThis week in Guadalajara, Mexico, the Internet Governance Forum 2016 is taking place. The IGF is one of the most important global events of the year when it comes to how policy and decision makers think about the Internet. Much of it focuses on Internet policy and doesn’t get too into the weeds on the technical side, but there are a few sessions we’d like to note that may be of interest to our readers.

Note: all times are Central Standard Time (CST), which is UTC-6.
