Chatham House Panel Discussion: Do We Still Trust the Internet?

‹ Back

Over the past few years, there has been a clear shift towards greater ‘securitization’ of the Internet, where security is less about personal data integrity and network resilience, and more about national security and political control. This is evident through the practice of Internet shutdowns, data localization policies, attacks on the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance and encryption backdoors.

At this event, held in partnership with Chatham House, participants discussed the trend towards ‘securitization’, its implications and how to strengthen trust in the Internet. They also announced the December 2017 edition of the Chatham House Journal of Cyber Policy, produced in partnership with the Internet Society.
