Dear everyone,

This is taking place in less than an hour - hope to see you there.

As usual, many developments have taken place this month - from
cybersecurity to data protection, net neutrality to IANA transition
updates. Diplo's next webinar briefing will summarise the IG and digital
policy developments in June, and what to expect in the next few weeks. The
one-hour webinar is on Tuesday, 30th June, at 11 UTC. Read more below or
and register for the webinar here


                      *June's IG briefing:*
*Internet governance in June 2015*

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to our next webinar briefing, on *Tuesday, 30th
June, at 11:00 UTC*, for an update on developments that took place in June,
and what to expect in the summer period.

Throughout this month, many developments have taken place. In
preparation for the WSIS+10 High-Level Event in New York, the selection
process of civil society delegates has accelerated. In the privacy and data
protection area, the Council of the European Union at the meeting of
ministers of justice agreed on a proposal for the General Data Protection
Regulation, which has been heavily criticised by human rights groups, who
consider this a step back for privacy. In cybersecurity, we have observed a
continuation of accusations of mutual hacking by states - Russia and China
hold the Snowden files, while China was accused of a breach of federal
personal data in the USA. Computer security companies revealed the
resurrection of the infamous Duqu, probably the most advanced piece of
malware which performs sophisticated intrusion into networks. In the net
neutrality debate, a possible trade-off was reached in the EU: giving up
net neutrality in return for putting an end to roaming charges. The ongoing
ICANN meeting in Buenos Aires should hint whether we are coming closer to a
IANA transition agreement soon.

Which other IG developments took place in June, and how are these
developments expected to shape future developments. What can we expect in
the next few weeks?

Join us - online or in situ - for a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global
IG and digital policies developments. The briefing will be delivered live
from Geneva (WMO, 7 bis Avenue de la Paix). *To participate, online or in
situ, please fill in the registration form
*Attendance is free, registration is required. You can also read the digest
of last month's briefing: Internet governance developments in May 2015

E-see you on Tuesday,
