Dear colleagues,

You are receiving this email on behalf of the Freedom Online Coalition
(FOC) working group “An Internet Free and Secure” (WG), as a representative
of an affiliate organization of one of its members.

As part of an effort to make the FOC a relevant, output-oriented coalition,
and our objective to make cybersecurity policies human rights respecting by
design, the WG has produced a set of recommendations for human rights based
approaches to cybersecurity, for which we are now seeking your endorsement.

Please find attached the Recommendations and the accompanying narrative.

We would appreciate if you could indicate your interest in endorsing the
Recommendations by responding to this email by May 10. If you are not in a
position to endorse the Recommendations, please let us know why not (by the
same date, preferably sooner).

[Additional explanatory text: As a first step towards seeking broader
community endorsement of the Recommendations, the WG would like to secure
endorsements from organisations that have been involved in the drafting
process. To this end, over the course of the month of April, WG members
will be reaching out to their respective organisations to solicit
endorsements. Once the endorsement period for WG affiliate organisations
has closed, the WG plans to seek endorsements from members of other FOC
working groups, select community leaders and amplifiers, and the FOC

The WG plans to formally launch the Recommendations, along with a list of
endorsements, at the upcoming Freedom Online Conference in Costa Rica, to
be held on October 17-18 in San Jose.

Should you have any questions, we would be happy to address them.

Thank you for your consideration. You can contact me privately.
