77 relevant international issues and, as appropriate, develop compatible unified strategies and solutions. The functions of the structural focal point would include: - To compile information on initiatives and activities in the field of cybersecurity and make this information available to all stakeholders - To support and promote in international forums the ITU’s activities in the development of technical standards to increase the security of networks (i.e., ITU-T activities) and the ITU’s activities in providing assistance to developing countries to protect their IP-based networks, through capacity building and providing information about national best practices (i.e., ITU-D activities). - In accordance with the ITU’s WSIS C5 mandate, to support and promote the work of other organizations who have expertise in cybersecurity areas in which the ITU does not have expertise, through such activities as information exchange, creation of knowledge, sharing of best practices, assistance in developing multi-stakeholder and public/private partnerships, collecting and publishing information, and maintaining a website. - To the extent they are within the ITU’s mandate, to implement any HLEG recommendations that are approved by Council, without duplicating the work of other organizations in this area. - To work with the global community on ongoing basis to engage the existing international regional and national structures in building a common understanding of the international issues involving cybersecurity and developing unified strategies and solutions. - To facilitate the coordination of the ITU’s work in this field with other organizations to avoid duplication of effort and, to the extent possible, to assist in identifying and achieving compatible goals amongst the various individual initiatives. - Work towards international harmonization of the activities of stakeholders in the various fields of cybersecurity. - Act as an expert resource for assisting stakeholders in the resolution of international issues that might arise relating to cybersecurity.

Two members queried the management of which & whose resources and activities. They suggested a clearer distinction should be made between ITU managing its resources, external bodies managing their resources and coordination between different bodies on their respective resources. One member called for policy coherence and coordination to avoid duplication of efforts.

    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.

    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.
