User Trust – a collaboration with the Internet Society

In recognition of the shared interests between Horizon’s “citizen centred” approach to the digital economy, and the “User Trust” theme of the Internet Society (ISOC), we decided in January 2017 to collaborate more closely with ISOC UK England, and to start to take an active role in the development an promotion of the User Trust theme.

The framework document for the ISOC User Trust agenda is available here.

On February 14th we ran a Webinar to solicit input from ISOC UK England community in preparation for the ISOC European Chapters meeting on February 22nd/23rd 2017, where we will discuss the national and regional User Trust topics to focus on.

On Thursday 9 March 2017, we conducted a follow-up Webinar to summarise discussions that took place at the European Chapters Meeting and to answer any questions ISOC UK England members might have about it.

The topics were structured along the four main topics of the meeting:
1. Data Breach reporting;
2. Editorial responsibility for online content;
3. Collaborative security;
4. Security of IoT devices.
