Changes to Our Work in 2021

Here at the Internet Society, we believe that the Internet is for everyone. Our work focuses on ensuring that the Internet remains open, globally-connected, trustworthy, and secure.

In 2020, we saw the world change in ways that no one could have anticipated.  Because of this, like so many other organizations, we had to assess our current and future plans and evaluate the resources available to us. As a result, we have made some changes to our activities for the upcoming year.

Moving into 2021, we will reduce activities related to our Open Standards Everywhere (OSE) and Time Security projects.

We still deeply believe that open Internet standards and securing the Internet’s time synchronization infrastructure are critical components for building an open and trustworthy Internet. So, while OSE and Time Security will no longer be standalone projects next year, we will continue to promote and defend these concepts through our other projects, initiatives, and activities.

Our work in 2020 in both these areas has had a measurable impact and many successes, which we will document in the 2020 Impact Report that will be published in early 2021. We will continue to finish work in progress on Time Security and OSE until the end of 2020 and will share details about how the projects will be concluded.

We’d like to thank everyone in the community for their tremendous support of and contributions to both of these issue areas throughout 2020.
