[liberationtech] Internet Governance Forum - BPF on incident response teams

Hi everyone, 

I am one of the leads for the Internet Governance
Forum Best Practices effort on incident response teams (CSIRT). This
effort started ahead of the Istanbul IGF, and led to the publication of
a best practices document [1]. 

The effort has been renewed for this
year. One of our goals is to get input and feedback from as many
different parts of the community, including civil society. 

We will be
covering a few areas that I think are of interest to many participants
of LiberationTech: 

- Can CSIRTs help guarantee privacy? Where is
privacy a concern in incident response?
- What are the benefits of
CSIRT's collaborating with law enforcement? What are the risks?
- What
type of misconceptions exist around the function and role of national
CSIRT teams?
- How do CSIRT interact with policy makers? Are there ways
to improve this? 

In particular around the privacy and law enforcement
topics, I can see the group here contributing greatly. 

If this is of
interest to you, I'd like to invite you to: 

(1) participate on our
mailing list, where a more detailed questionnaire was sent out (sign up
and see the call for comments at
At a later point in time we will also set up a few conference calls,
and invites will be distributed to that list; 

(2) reach out to me
directly with any thoughts and I can take your comments into the group.

Thanks in advance for any experiences and thoughts you are able to
