Internet security is increasingly important – and increasingly linked to our economic and social prosperity. A secure and resilient network and application infrastructure is vital to continuing our existing operations and growing our businesses. With so much interconnection and interdependency on the global Internet, we must manage risks collaboratively to achieve effective security for everyone.
An action (or inaction) by any organization may present the Internet ecosystem with either a challenge or an opportunity to benefit us all. Only by managing both traditional, ‘inward’ risks and ‘outward’ risks – those that could cause problems for other networks around the globe and ultimately harm us all – can we make the Internet more secure and resilient.
At the Broadband World Forum Network Security Workshop, which took place in October 2013, we looked at three main areas of Internet security:
- Network Security – Organizations of all sizes must protect the usability, reliability, integrity, and safety of their networks and data to protect against routing misconfigurations and attacks, IP-spoofing, DDoS attacks, etc.
- DNS Security – To prevent hackers from taking over servers and website traffic, we must introduce security and authentication into the domain name system.
- Email Security – To protect your organization’s sensitive, private, and valuable information, we must introduce secure email technologies.
We’ve uploaded the videos from the introduction, the DNS Security (DNSSEC) section, and the Network Security section. (We’ll add the Email Security section later once we’ve received clearance from the presenter.) Please let us know what you think of the videos!
