Major Initiatives in Cybersecurity: Public & Private Contributions Towards Increasing Internet Security

Internet security is the part of cybersecurity that, broadly speaking, relates to the security of Internet infrastructure, the devices connected to it, and the technical building blocks from which applications and platforms are built.

By design, the Internet is a distributed system with no central core or point of control. Instead, Internet security is achieved by collaboration where multiple companies, organizations, governments and individuals take action to improve the security and trustworthiness of the Internet, so that it is open, secure and available to all.

This paper intends to illustrate, by means of a handful of examples regarding Internet Infrastructure, that there are great number initiatives that are working, sometimes together and sometimes independently, in improving the Internet’s security. An approach we call collaborative security.
