Safety and Security Plan for ICANN Meetings

5 October 2010

As announced earlier within the updated Plan for Enhancing Internet Security, Stability & Resiliency, ICANN is posting the Safety and Security Plan for ICANN International Public Meetings.

This Safety and Security Plan [PDF, 107 KB] describes the planning process to evaluate and manage security related risks to the overall enterprise and to leverage the ICANN security team and local resources as well as support from security consultants.

Building on efforts to support improved security planning for ICANN Meetings, the process described in this Safety and Security Plan will be incorporated in the site selection process and in security preparations for ICANN Meetings held in FY 2011 and beyond.

As part of the process set forth in the Safety and Security Plan, ICANN is also posting the assessment of risks [PDF, 168 KB] conducted by an outside expert for the December 2010 ICANN Meeting site. This assessment, from international security consultancy Control-Risks Group, details the security threats to be considered in planning for the ICANN Meeting in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.
