IEEE Internet Initiative Launches IEEE Internet Policy Letters Focused on Global Internet Policy Issues and Associated Technology Options

PISCATAWAY, N.J., USA, 19 September 2016 – IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced the IEEE Internet Initiative has launched the inaugural issue of IEEE Internet Policy Letters.

“The IEEE Internet Initiative is connecting the world’s technical and policymaking communities for Internet governance, cybersecurity and privacy, in order to inform, debate and make decisions. The aim: to help ensure trustworthy technology solutions and best practices and to successfully address fundamentally new technology policy challenges,” said Oleg Logvinov, chair of the IEEE Internet Initiative.

“The IEEE Internet Initiative has established a neutral platform for meaningful dialogue to take place as Internet technologies and policies evolve and progress. This is what IEEE does so uniquely well: bringing technology and policy experts together around the table in open, balanced collaboration and extending local conversations to the global stage,” he continued.

The bi-monthly, Internet technology policy focused online publication aims to foster an intellectual exchange of ideas between the world’s top subject matter experts, researchers and practitioners in the areas of Internet governance, cybersecurity, privacy and universal Internet access globally, regionally and locally. The IEEE Internet Initiative invites authors to contribute and receive recognition in the publication. For author guidelines and information on how to submit an article, email the managing editor.
