Asia Internet Symposium-Online

AIS-Online (AIS-O) is a virtual space to discuss emerging Internet topics of common interest and importance to the Asia-Pacific region. It facilitates open discussions on emerging issues in and around the region using an online platform which allows wider participation, and targets the broader community including policy makers, governments, civil societies, the business community, industry and interested individuals. AIS-Online is typically 90 minutes in length and consists of a roundtable with invited subject matter experts on a single topic, followed by open dialogue with participants.


Online Security and Building Trust in the Age of the Digital Economy


This Asia Internet Symposium-Online (AIS-O) will look at how we can build a better online security and trust agenda for the Asia-Pacific region. What are the goals of online security and trust in today’s dynamic online environment? We will explore the interplay of security and trust, and how these work within the Internet ecosystem while also assessing how technology and non-technology policies affect them. In addition, we will be asking, what are the roles of the different players in the context of building a secure and trusted Internet in an environment that is rapidly evolving?

Dimensions to be addressed:

  • What do security and trust in the Internet mean, particularly in the context of the digital economy?
  • What are the policy challenges (technology and non-technology) for these trust and security concerns?
  • How can trust in the Internet be used to shape conversations in various aspects of policy/regulatory decision-making?

The event will be divided into two sessions, with each speaker to be given 5 minutes to convey their key points followed by discussions and participant interaction led by the Moderator.
