2019-02-03 2:15:23 PM 2019 Submission 13 Protecting Consumers Against Phone Phising Data Privacy · Cybersecurity · TechLash As people have more information about themselves available online, with more data breaches occurring, it is simple for scammers to use credible information to build trust and initiate spear phasing attacks, leaving the victim with their personal identity information compromised and or financially distressed. Social engineering attacks are difficult to combat, and especially difficult to recover from in terms of financially, psychologically, and more. How might we help people protect themselves from theses phasing scams, particularly when they use social engineering tactics? This project will explore potential solutions to better protect consumers based on data collected on “VISHING’ (VOICE PHISING) attacks. The first phase will entail information gathering through in-depth interviews and scraping online sources, and the second phase will include designing a prototype of a tool for consumers to protect themselves against social engineering tactics and testing its plausibility with users.

SEEC Harlem aims to exploit edge cloud computing in the dense urban environment of upper Manhattan to realize new affordable and accessible computing. Silicon Harlem and the mayor’s office of NYC are the primary community and government partners for both projects. From a local governance standpoint, we are working with a participatory technology assessment methodology to look next generation community internet as a public trust. Private Sector
2019-02-11 11:38:44 AM 2019 Submission 58 Aligning with the UN and other bodies to agree upon a standard definition for digital literacy. See additional context below. Digital Inclusion According to UNESCO, “literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute, and use printed, and written materials associated with varying contexts” (UNESCO). However, there is no such consensus or clarity around a standard for digital literacy. Without such a global or uniform definition, it is difficult for the world to address digital cooperation issues and measure progress. Imagine the impact if the UN were to support a comprehensive framework for digital skills and intelligence and endorse a global standard for a definition of digital literacy and skills. This could aid in achieving a measurement and reporting methodology while enabling individuals, organizations, and nation states to track their progress over time. Private Sector

2019-02-11 2:10:07 PM 2019 Submission 63 Artificial Intelligence & The Role of Government Regulation AI Machine learning and artificial intelligence/augmented intelligence (AI), powered by streams of data and advanced algorithms, have incredible potential to improve countless consumer and enterprise use cases. For example, in healthcare, AI can prevent hospitalizations, reduce complications, and improve patient engagement. Yet, applications of AI have also given rise to a variety of potential effects and challenges for U.S. policymakers to consider, including notice/consent, bias, inclusion, transparency and digital due process, and law enforcement access to data, among others. As AI innovations continue to be developed and even start to enter today’s regulatory processes, U.S. policymakers at the legislative and regulatory levels are considering whether policy changes are needed. This session should feature diverse viewpoints from across the IGF-USA community to advance the public conversation on the role government oversight should have with respect to AI. • http://fortune.com/2018/12/06/artificial-intelligence-regulation-government/ • https://issues.org/perspective-should-artificial-intelligence-be-regulated/ • https://theconversation.com/congress-takes-first-steps-toward-regulating-artificial-intelligence-104373 Private Sector

Increasingly, policymakers on the Hill and at key federal agencies (e.g., FTC) have begun to more seriously examine whether there is a need for antitrust intervention in online platform markets. This session should feature policymakers from both the Hill and FTC, as well as industry and civil society stakeholders, who can educate IGF-USA members about, and provide diverse perspectives on, the current debate regarding antitrust law and platforms. •https://www.competitionpolicyinternational.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/CPI-Nazzini.pdf •http://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/x/695472/Antitrust+Competition/Abuse+of+Dominance+Concerning+Online+Platforms •https://www.concurrences.com/en/conferences/online-platforms-the-interplay-of-regulation-and-antitrust-enforcement Private Sector
2019-02-11 2:12:08 PM 2019 Submission 65 Trends in Regulatory Approaches to ‘Over-the-Top’ Services – Should Telecom Laws be Applied to Network Edge Services? OTT · Regulation Traditionally, telecom laws around the world have applied to copper line voice service providers. These laws have, in many countries, since been applied internet service providers (the providers of pipes that data packets flow through). More recently, policies (some proposed and some in place today) have sought to apply the same telecom laws to “over-the-top” services, or services that are access over a telecom network’s infrastructure. Such policies are currently being debated in the U.S., as well as in other key jurisdictions like India. This session would feature stakeholders from government, industry, and civil society that will debate whether OTT services should or should not be exposed to telecom regulatory-like regimes and make recommendations on a path forward. •https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/telecom/telecom-news/telcos-otts-not-comparable-new-regulation-for-ott-may-hurt-innovation-bif/articleshow/66812461.cms?from=mdr •https://www.techradar.com/news/germany-wants-ott-service-providers-should-be-regulated-like-telcos Private Sector
2019-02-11 2:13:44 PM 2019 Submission 66 Status of efforts to create a US federal privacy framework Data Privacy With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation in effect and US states (e.g., California) adopting privacy regulatory regimes, there is more pressure than ever before for the federal government to adopt a modern privacy framework. Already, work is afoot on the Hill, as well as at key federal agencies like NTIA and NIST. This session should feature policymakers, as well as IGF-USA community member viewpoints, and would (1) educate IGF-USA attendees on the current status of federal privacy framework efforts and how they relate, and (2) provide key perspectives from government, industry, civil society, and other IGF-USA community stakeholders. • https://www.adweek.com/programmatic/sen-marco-rubio-introduces-federal-privacy-legislation-to-supersede-state-laws/ • https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/California-law-could-be-Congress-model-for-13604213.php • https://www.ajc.com/news/battle-lines-forming-ahead-looming-privacy-law-fight/BD23aBV4VamPNmzrXKX1QO/ • https://www.ntia.doc.gov/press-release/2018/ntia-seeks-comment-new-approach-consumer-data-privacy • https://www.nist.gov/privacy-framework Private Sector

2019-02-11 3:11:34 PM 2019 Submission 69 Internet Accessibility Digital Inclusion The internet has produced incredible advances in creating an experience for those with disabilities equivalent to those without disabilities. Further, demographic trends (e.g., the aging Baby Boomer generation) have led to the creation of niche market opportunities to service those with disabilities. Platform owners and the developers who leverage their ecosystems have recognized the responsibility to develop technology that is accessible and usable by everyone, including those with disabilities.

2019-02-11 3:27:49 PM 2019 Submission 70 Usage of Internet as an International Development Tool Access The internet is much widespread than ever; however, the pace of internet growth has also slowed down in the last few years; especially, in the underdeveloped countries where different kinds of infrastructure are needed. Some community networks, satellite connectivity and other projects by the likes of Facebook and Google had brought some hope but they soon vanished. The focus on the west is mainly on the usage of internet for developing solutions that are more centric to entertainment; the biggest internet companies are social media firms and internet devices manufacturers and they certainly don't have a vision for using the internet in a way that could benefit the most underdeveloped countries of the world. A great tool as internet can go much more beyond face-filters and 4K movies to becoming a tool for poverty reduction, quality education and beyond. Private Sector
