The IEEE Internet Initiative helps inform internet policy with Experts in Technology and Policy (ETAP) Forums by bringing together technology developers and policy makers to debate current and future internet governance, cybersecurity and privacy issues that impact everyone on a global, national and local level.

Participants were invited to this second IEEE ETAP Forum, including:

Technology developers seeking a better understanding of the internet public-policy landscape to help drive proactive technology design. The IEEE Internet Initiative brings technologists into internet public-policy discussions, boosting their awareness of issues and processes and increasing their influence.

Policy experts seeking reliable technical guidance to make informed internet public-policy decisions. IEEE is uniquely suited as a neutral, credible forum that can help ensure trustworthy technology solutions and best practices in Internet policymaking.

This event follows the IEEE End-to-End Trust and Security Workshop for the Internet of Things that was held on 4 February 2016.
