Discussing the Global Commision on Internet Governance statement, Toward a Social Compact for Digital Privacy and Security

5,029 views

Published on

The Global Commission on Internet Governance (ourinternet.org) published a statement 15th April 2015 for the Global Conference on Cyberspace meeting in The Hague. It calls on the global community to build a new social compact between citizens and their elected representatives, the judiciary, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, business, civil society and the Internet technical community, with the goal of restoring trust and enhancing confidence in the Internet.

This stack frames my contribution to a discussion of the statement at the Web Science Institute event 8th June 2015.

  10. 10. The social compact [for a digital society] will contribute to a new kind of “collaborative privacy and security.” Every part of the Internet ecosystem affects every other part. ” “ Toward a Social Compact for Digital Privacy and Security, Global Commission on Internet Governance, 15 April 2015, http://www.chathamhouse.org/publication/toward-social-compact-digital-privacy-and-security
  11. 11. [The compact] is about ensuring that a framework exists where each actor has the responsibility to act not only in their own interests, but also in the interest of the Internet ecosystem as a whole. ” “ Toward a Social Compact for Digital Privacy and Security, Global Commission on Internet Governance, 15 April 2015, http://www.chathamhouse.org/publication/toward-social-compact-digital-privacy-and-security
  12. 12. The focus is rightly on each actor, recognising that society and its Internet are complex adaptive systems. The health and resilience of a living system (sustainability) requires actors have the facility to operate intelligently, and such facility is undermined by poor privacy and security. http://hi-project.org/2015/03/the-hiproject-and-sustainability/
