Watch this overview of the inaugural Conference on Internet Governance and Cyber-Security, hosted by Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) in collaboration with the Global Commission on Internet Governance (GCIG) on May 14 and 15. 

This major forum convened leading experts in public policy and technology from the public, private, nonprofit, and academic sectors for discussion of critical issues in Internet governance and cyber-security.

The emerging challenges brought about by new technologies will require novel and adaptive policy responses from governments with major input and participation from the private sector, policy makers and the academy. Only by convening these diverse interests is it likely that effective policy frameworks can be developed over time. It is with this need in mind that Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) hosted the Conference on Internet Governance and Cyber-Security from May 14 to 15, in collaboration with the Global Commission on Internet Governance.
