Third Russian Internet Governance Forum – Internet Security Forum: Schedule

As global network is an entity beyond the governments and borders, it is critical for all stakeholders, such as governments, businesses and societies, to understand all aspects related to Internet security. A multistakeholder model, where knowledge and experience of governments, businesses, experts and Internet community are used to solve arising problems, is one of the best options to ensure safe and secure internet use. By taking all opinions and comments, even controversial ones, into account, it is possible to develop liberal, conscious and non- discriminating patterns for Internet governance – and for making Internet a safer place.

The Forum is held annually, and will see its third opening in 2012. RIGF meetings aim to provide a meeting point for industry experts, business and government representatives. Members of State Duma, Russian officials and government representatives from other countries, as well as leading Internet community experts and others, will attend the event to discuss one of the most topical challenges of Internet governance – making the Internet safe and secure.
