Work Area two, “Technical and procedural measures” , focused on key measures for addressing vulnerabilities in software products, including accreditation schemes, protocols and standards. Work Area three, “Organizational structures” , considered generic frameworks and response strategies for the prevention, detection, response to and crisis management of cyberattacks, including the protection of countries’ critical information infrastructure systems. Work Area four, “Capacity building” , sought to elaborate strategies for capacity-building mechanisms to raise awareness, transfer know-how and boost cybersecurity on the national policy agenda. Finally, Work Area five, “International cooperation” sought to develop a strategy for international cooperation, dialogue and coordination in dealing with cyberthreats. 3 THE HIGH-LEVEL EXPERTS GROUP (HLEG) An expert panel was appointed to advise the ITU Secretary-General on the complex issues surrounding cybersecurity, consisting of world-renowned specialists in the subject.

66 3.1. Main Responsibilities of the HLEG The key purpose of the HLEG was to advise the ITU Secretary-General on the complex issues surrounding cybersecurity and to formulate proposals on long-term strategies to promote cybersecurity in the five key Work Areas . The main responsibilities of the HLEG were: - to further develop GCA by proposing refinements to its main goals; - to analyze current developments in cybersecurity, including both threats and state-of-the-art solutions, anticipate emerging and future challenges, identify strategic options, and formulate proposals to the ITU Secretary-General; - To meet the goals of GCA ; and - To provide guidance on possible long-term strategies and emerging trends in cybersecurity. HLEG Members acted in their personal capacity and at their own expense, so their advice can be considered as objective and impartial. To ensure a representative balance in the membership of the HLEG, its members were nominated as a broad cross-selection from Member States from the five world regions; industry (manufacturers, operators, service providers, software developers, security and other information technology firms) and other regional and international organizations, academic and research institutions.

    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.
