The special track on cybersecurity should include examination of how more effective global implementation of standards through security by design will make ICTs networks, applications and services more secure - including IoT. There is an IGF dynamic coalition examining this aim with the aim of making recommendations and toolkits: IS3C https://www.intgovforum.org/en/content/internet-standards-security-and-safety-coalition-is3c I am a policy adviser with this coalition and hope to have the opportunity to provide an update at the WSIS Forum.

Agree with Neema that all multistakeholder WSIS Forum and IGF processes at the national, regional and global levels need to promote the active participation of parliamentarians as both lawmakers in parliaments and as representatives of local communities.

African Child Projects in Tanzania, is already doing and innovating interventions towards bridging digital gaps between the rural and urban Tanzania. various projects are at hand where the intervention is focused in rural schools, providing Digital education platforms and digital capacity building to both Teachers and students
Neema Lugangira
01:19:33
Thank you @Mark Carvell. We as Parliamentarians are often forgotten yet we are key to sustainable digital transformation. The risk of this is us passing Legislation that instead of creating progress actually does the very oppositive. I am so pleased my suggestion has been well received. Thank you.
Nigel Hickson

I agree that safety online is a critical issue of concern. As Neema said, we have seen in the UK how harmful and threatening online content can deter participation in the democratic process.
Neema Lugangira
01:28:07
Yes correct @Rodwyn Grewan. The broadband backhaul to rural areas needs policy advocacy is key.
Rodwyn Grewan
01:29:59
Thanks Neema. I am in South Africa. We should drive a continental movement ourselves🙂 for more broadband

Regarding access to the Internet in underserved rural areas or where no access at all, it would be valuable for the WSIS Forum to review the benefits of community networks - and overcoming barriers (e.g. regulation and lack of funding) to setting them up.

The different initiatives under the WSIS umbrella Action lines, Special Tracks and reccommended connection with SDGs generates a one to many or many to many connections (e.g. cybersecurity topic) the point will be to keep connection updated and avoid too much duplications/overlapping
Nigel Hickson
01:35:49
Thank you for Session
Neema Lugangira
01:35:49
@Mark Carvell - to have a strategic discussion with regards to the access to the internet in underserved rural areas, that is peripheral regions we need Parliamentarians on board because regulations are a key ingredient to this.
Caterina Berbenni-Rehm
01:35:51
