One member wished to add recommendation: “The Secretary-General should establish a collaborative initiative, in cooperation and conjunction with leaders of the key organizations for cybersecurity including OECD, Forum of Incident Response Teams (FIRST), Software Assurance Forum for Excellence in Code, ISACA, ISC2, IMPACT, ICANN and other key organizations to convene a yearly summit that focuses on key cybersecurity issues. The proposed Summit should be a day and a half summit immediately preceding the WSIS C5 Action Line implementation meetings. Collaborating to convene a senior-level summit will catalyze focus towards achieving the goals of C5 Action Line”. 5 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS During the year since its launch, the GCA has achieved some notable key successes, including endorsement by the WSIS stakeholder community during the 2008 WSIS Action Line C5 Meeting as a credible multi-stakeholder global framework for international cooperation in addressing the global challenges in cybersecurity. The GCA has strengthened ITU’s role as sole Facilitator/Moderator in WSIS Action Line C5 and provides the framework within ITU for internal coordination of ITU's own activities in cybersecurity. The work of the High-Level Experts Group was supported by the voluntary participation of and thought leadership of more than one hundred experts representing a wide range of players in cybersecurity, at their own cost. This work has resulted in strategies and recommendations for addressing the wide range of challenges relating to global cybersecurity. The output of the High-Level Experts Group is represented by the set of recommendations, views and deliberations presented in this Chair’s Report and the five strategic reports to be issued in one overall publication. I am proud to have been a part of this key initiative by the ITU and am pleased to have been able to contribute to its important work and significant achievements. I would like to thank ITU Secretary-General for giving me the opportunity to chair this illustrious Group and to contribute to the work of this important ITU initiative. These achievements would not have been possible without the dedication and sacrifices of the Members of the HLEG and especially the Work Area Leaders. I should like to thank all those who contributed actively to the work of the HLEG and especially, Mr. Jaak Tepandi, Mr. Justin Rattner, Mr. Taïeb Debbagh, Ms. Solange Ghernaouti-Helie, Mr. Ivar Tallo, Mr. Shamsul Jafni Shafie and Mr. Zane Cleophas. I would also like to thank the Focal Points for Cybersecurity from the Radiocommunications (BR), Telecommunication Standardization (TSB) and Development (BDT) Bureaus for their guidance and support. Finally, I would like to thank the Corporate Strategy Division for providing the secretariat support for the GCA and for their outstanding assistance to the HLEG that made it possible to finish these reports and recommendations so rapidly.

    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.
