in Ulan Bator, Mongolia, for the FOC conference (May 4-5)

On May 4-5, I will take part in the annual meeting of the Freedom Online Coalition (FOC). The FOC, established in 2011, is a 'group of governments who have committed to work together to support Internet freedom and protect fundamental human rights – free expression, association, assembly, and privacy online – worldwide', as reads the website. I am part of one of the three FOC Working Groups supporting FOC members, namely of WG1 'An Internet Free and Secure'. In Mongolia we will present the outcome of the mapping cybersecurity sub-project, and the preliminary version of our recommendations on how to uphold an approach to cybersecurity which is rights-respecting by design.
