Panel Guidelines

Panel teams should use this process to discuss the panel and get as close as possible to consensus on the following items by April 17.

  • Decide on a concrete subject for the panel based upon discussion and rough consensus. The subject and process should take into account:
    • The IGF-USA Principles
    • The working title, working description and related submissions. See Below
  • Assign team leader(s) and a representative to interface with the steering committee and provide ongoing up to date information to the wrangler and secretariat.

Survey Topic

Working Title: The internet is a dumpster fire. Now what?

Working Description: The internet isn’t perfect. The biggest internet companies created tools for good that are now being used with bad intentions. Countries don’t always make the best decisions. Users make poor choices in security... so now what? This session looks at the “TechLash” in terms of three current trends in addressing early design flaws: sweeping regulations in content platforms around data breach liability, an entity having ‘too much’ data, and end-user control options. Tech backlash is gaining momentum against Fake news that disrupts our democracy; hate speech and violent videos; and perceived tech bias against conservative bias. If you have a gripe about the internet, this session is for you!

2019-02-03 2:15:23 PM 2019 Submission 13 Protecting Consumers Against Phone Phising Data Privacy 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.

To what extent can platforms preempt this type of regulation with better enforcement? What are the dangers to freedom of expression? In what ways does objectionable content and overmoderation affect historically disadvantaged groups? Civil Society / Academia

2019-02-11 1:49:54 PM 2019 Submission 61 Free Speech Or Hate Speech: Should Online Due Diligence Change? Content Policy We recently submitted the following for consideration at RightsCon and it may be relevant for IGF USA as well: New hate groups are appearing in rapid, successive fashion. When the public is outraged at you as a provider, how do you determine if a new group on your network is a hate group? How much research do you do as a provider to determine if they have violated your terms of service agreement - yet? This session will discuss difficult real and possible scenarios. We’ll show how Internet companies can set clear and open criteria around acceptable usage.​ 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 8:21:08 PM 2019 Submission 73 Platform liability for user content Content Policy Limits on platform liability are the backbone of net 2.0 since it enabled user-created content. Today, these liability limits are under threat from multiple business and political interests wanting to turn back the clock on the internet economy and reestablish their control over information publication.

2019-02-11 8:25:53 PM 2019 Submission 74 Moderation of user content on social media platforms Content Policy As pressure has increased on social media to improve content moderation on their platforms, critics have argued that these efforts lack transparency and are too strict. A discussion on how social media platforms should balance these opposing pressures is key in educating the public, government, and civil society in the intricacies and challenges facing platforms that work to responsibly moderate content.
