collaborate in the development of materials for establishing national CSIRTs and for effectively communicating with the CSIRT authorities. 2.4. ITU should establish a long-term commitment to develop and refine Study Group 1/Question 22 efforts to identify and promote best practices related to national frameworks for managing cybersecurity and CIIP, as well as to establish regional workshops that help identify and share techniques for establishing and maintaining comprehensive cybersecurity programmes. 2.5. With regards to general activities for procedural measures, to promote more efficient approaches for improving security and risk management processes, any initiatives or recommendations in the field of technical measures must build upon the important work that has been done by the ITU on the development of best practices and standards for cybersecurity. 2.6. With regard to standards that are developed by other standardization organizations, ITU could act as a facilitator in promoting collaboration between different standardization organizations with a view to ensuring that new standards are developed in accordance with the principles of openness, interoperability and non-discrimination. 2.7. HLEG experts called for investigation, analysis, and selection, in cooperation with ITU-T, ISO, IEC, and other relevant bodies, of the ICT security standards and frameworks that can be leveraged to promote procedural measures. The frameworks to be investigated include ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27 standards and technical reports on security techniques, the IT Baseline Protection Manual (from Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik), the COBIT (from IT Governance Institute) , ITU-T X-series Recommendations (developed by ITU-T SG 17), and other documents about security, evaluating and certification of information systems and network security.

72 One member agreed with recommendation 2.7, but wished to draw attention to the tendency to overstate security issues related to applications with a lack of attention to issues related to services and infrastructures in the security approach in ITU-T Recommendation X.805. 2.8. ITU should develop proposals for procedural measures based on the selected ICT security standards and frameworks. As there are many useful materials, the ITU proposal might concern application and promotion of existing standards and frameworks (or their combinations), instead of elaborating its own versions or standards. 2.9. ITU should develop model recommendations that can assist governments specifying organizational environments where the procedural measures proposed by ITU should be used. One member wished to delete recommendations 2.8 and 2.9. Another member proposed the development of ‘models’ in 2.9, rather than ‘recommendations’, so it does not imply that an ITU ‘recommendation’ will be developed (although that may ultimately happen, depending on the topic and work in ITU-T & ITU-D).

    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.
