Internet Society Reinforces Need to Connect the Unconnected, Build Trust

The Internet Society’s President and CEO, Kathy Brown, has highlighted how connecting the unconnected and building trust are the two most pressing imperatives facing the Internet today.

ISOC used its presence at the 10th Internet Governance Forum taking place this week in João Pessoa, Brazil to call on the global Internet community to act now on these issues to unlock the full potential of the Internet for the future and to affirm once again that the Internet is for everyone, everywhere. Speaking at the Opening Ceremony of the IGF, Kathy Brown highlighted that the IGF is an opportunity to celebrate the 10 years of transformative change that have been brought about by collective efforts to build an Internet from the bottom up for the benefit of society, but also to engage in much needed dialogue on the key challenges ahead.

In attending the IGF meeting this week, the Internet Society aims to illustrate how inclusive governance is the vehicle for the ultimate shared objective of connecting the unconnected to a trusted Internet that continues to be a platform for human, social and economic development and for improving the exercise of human rights.
