DNS Forum – Day 2

On September 14 & 15, Public Interest Registry, CENTR, LACTLD, i2Coalition, and ISOC-DC will bring together a diverse group of experts to discuss the impacts of policy on DNS (domain name system) technical operators.  Panelists and audience members will discuss the implications of privacy, security, and content policies for these technical operators and how the technical community can best engage in the evolving multistakeholder model of Internet governance.

Developing sound policies to build trust online, to encourage use and innovation, and to ensure an open and secure Internet is vital.  So is the ability for those policies to be implemented by technical operators. The discussions during this forum are designed to bridge the gap that can form between policy development and the technical implementation.  Encouraging collaboration between policy and technical stakeholders can only lead to a stronger policies and a more resilient Internet for users.
