In an increasingly global environment, the Internet infrastructure industry faces a diverse set of serious issues that we as an industry need to address together. To look at these concerns, an area of focus for the i2Coalition has been best practices for our industry. Our approach to developing best practices encapsulates three areas, always with the goal of striking the right balance between security, safety, and privacy: working with experts and industry professionals; identifying like-minded partners; and fostering the growth of the Internet economy.
Best Practices’ purpose is to identify good acts, good actors and then, points of collaboration between i2Coalition and those good actors so that we can aid and assist key organizations in accomplishing their goals for the good of the Internet as a whole.
As an industry, we must work together to develop a set of sensible self-policing policies. i2Coalition’s Best Practices Working Group endeavors to partner with like-minded organizations who understand the nuts and bolts of the Internet. By working together, we can develop methods and practices that will move our industry forward in our common goals to promote safety and privacy in the Internet community while providing an arena for economic expansion.
Our approach to developing best practices encapsulates three areas, always with the goal of striking the right balance between security, safety, and privacy: working with experts and industry professionals; identifying like-minded partners; and fostering the growth of the Internet economy. We’re looking for current and new members to help us in tackling these issues and be one of our experts.
The Best Practices Working Group meets as a large group once every quarter. We have three monthly meeting sub-groups of Best Practices allowing for more face time for directly engaging the industry and the issues.
