Date:Wed, 18/05/2011 - Fri, 20/05/2011
Organization:United Nations, Inter-Parliamentary Union and International Telecommunication Union
The Parliamentary Forum “The Triple Challenge of Cyber-Security: Information, Citizens and Infrastructure” was the fourth meeting of Members of Parliament focusing on issues relating to the Information Society organized within the framework of the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament.
The Fourth Parliamentary Forum focused on the representative, law-making and oversight responsibilities of members of parliaments in the area of cyber-security. It addressed the particular challenges posed by the illicit use of information and communication technologies, such as the safeguarding of citizens in the connected environment; the protection of State information, data and infrastructures; and the transnational response to cybercrime.
The aim of the Forum was to further the dialogue among legislators on the different strategic and political priorities implemented at the national level, outline a broad perspective of different national engagements directed at responding to the challenge discussed, delineate the role and responsibilities of parliaments in their legislative and oversight functions with respect to the topic addressed, identify good parliamentary practices and draw recommendations for action by legislatures.
