How to tackle Internet governance and policy from a global perspective

In this “Secure in Mind” podcast episode, we are glad to welcome Ms. Hanane Boujemi, Internet policy and governance expert directing the Tech Policy Tank in the UK, a think tank providing market intelligence, policy analysis and advice on tech products and services deployment

18 Set 2019

Hanane is an experienced and ambitious leader, specialised in internet governance and regulatory challenges, international law and diplomacy.

In what was a truly enriching discussion, we explored the complex and multi-faceted world of Internet governance, with it being subject to the influence of a variety of cultures, agendas and countries. Its overall global relevance is significant, as Hanane clarifies by sharing the importance of anticipating and understanding the impact that Internet usage and management has on the users’ current and future societies, as well as by engaging users into shaping policies governing Internet usage.

Women empowerment in IT & tech: how to shape the policy of the future together

During the discussion, Hanane and I explored her view on the voice of women in tech & ICT, predictably still a challenging field due to strong societal and stereotypical issues. However, she highlighted the great, beneficial role the internet can and does offer when employed as a tool of empowerment… often easier said than done but Hanane is one of the inspirational women making it happen!

Finally, we touched on her Blockchain research, of the rising accountability in ensuring users’ privacy and rights with reference to one Facebook’s exorbitant fine as well as the subsequent need for stronger government-enabled regulatory frameworks… the perennial issue of the day being the creation of legislation is a reactive manoeuvre, and our tech world keeps on moving faster and faster…

The Secure in Mind Project

Our mission is to greatly increase and encourage community discussion about technological and ethical issues that have done, are and will impact society on a global scale.

There is a longstanding and distinct disconnect between the way information is packaged and presented to the public and the effectiveness of this presentation in terms of generating informed, considered debate.

If we can take complex, important topics and present them, as best we can, in a manner that can interests people from outside the speciality, then we have surpassed our expectations.

Nick Kelly Bio

Nick is someone who, in many senses, is just like you: a human being trying to make sense of this existence of ours as we hurtle around a ball of gas in a sea of infinite eternity. More relevant though are his vacillations in the world amongst diverse countries and environments, collaborating, negotiating, elaborating and celebrating with fascinating people from all walks of life including politics, technology, activism, military and intelligence the world over.

He brings this unique breadth of perspective to the table and has a dogged interest in pursuing the human story behind the title or policy, appreciating the fact that underneath all of our bravado, political correctness and dichotomous states of creation and destruction, we are, after all, merely mortals trying to make the best of it.
