Dear All, 

APC is implementing a small exploratory project “Putting cybersecurity on the rights track” with the support of Mozilla. The goal of the project is to help APC develop a research and advocacy strategy to make sure that cybersecurity, policy and norms are influenced by civil society and progressive techie voices so that these policies consistently integrate a rights-based approach.

To develop this longer term strategy and larger project plan we need APC members and partners to tell us what they see as critical issues, needs, and opportunities - at national, regional and global levels.

To get your input we have developed a survey to help APC map the cybersecurity ecosystem in order to:
* establish who the key actors and institutions are
* where critical cybersecurity decisions are being made at global, regional, and national levels
* identify opportunities to advance human rights-based approaches to cybersecurity
* identify cybersecurity-related threats to human rights
* help identify cybersecurity-related issues and concepts for which resources (explainers, briefings, etc.) would be valuable
* investigate where APC should focus its further work in the area, including research
This survey should take around 30-35 minutes. We sincerely appreciate your participation by next Wednesday, April 17.

You will find it here. https://limesurvey.apc.org/index.php/984143?lang=en
Please send questions to Alex or Mehar at alex.comninos at gmail.com or mehar at apc.org

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!
