71 this. One member emphasized that ITU conferences should be open in its membership, especially to developing countries, whilst another underlined the importance of ITU remaining open to collaboration. Several members included reference to ITU’s mandate as Facilitator for WSIS Action Line C5 and proposed insertions in square brackets refining the scope of the stakeholders involved. 2) Technical and Procedural Measures Overview: Work Area two (WA2) focused on key measures for addressing vulnerabilities in software products, including accreditation schemes, protocols and standards . Discussions covered how to build on existing work in this area, including inter alia , the Common Criteria and the work of ITU-T and other standardization organizations. There was no consensus on recommendations proposing that ITU could explore possibilities for a globally-accepted ICT Security accreditation framework (recommendations 2.10 & 2.11). Recommendations: 2.1. With regards to opportunities to enhance collaboration with existing cybersecurity work outside of ITU, the ITU should work with existing external centers of expertise to identify, promote and foster adoption of enhanced security procedures and technical measures. 2.2. ITU should take steps to facilitate it becoming the global “centre of excellence” for the collection and distribution of timely telecommunications/ICT cybersecurity-related information – including a publicly available institutional ecosystem of sources – to enhance cybersecurity capabilities worldwide. One member preferred to refer to ITU being “a” global centre of reference rather than “the” global centre for reference, whilst another member expressed its opposition to making this change. 2.3. ITU should collaborate with organizations, vendors, and other appropriate subject matter experts to: 1) advance incident response as a discipline worldwide; 2) promote and support possibilities for CSIRTs to join the existing global and regional conferences and forums, in order to build capacity for improving state-of-the-art incident response on a regional basis; and 3)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
