    Egypt Partakes in ITU-SG17 Meeting

    Date published: 28 August 2018

    Egypt, represented by the Egyptian Computer Emergency Readiness Team (EG-CERT), will partake in the meeting of Study Group 17 (SG17)- Security, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) on August 29 to September 7, at ITU headquarters, in Geneva, Switzerland.

    Preceding the meeting, a one-day ITU Workshop on Ransomware will be held on August 28 to analyze ransomware landscape and risks of ransomware attacks to social, cultural, and economic systems; identify organizational or technical security capabilities to prevent/combat ransomware attacks; share ongoing activities among relevant groups and industries that aim to prevent ransomware attacks; identify how international standards could assist organizations to take necessary actions; and discuss ways forward that SG17 should undertake to identify countermeasures to such attacks.

    ITU-T Study Group 17 (SG17) coordinates security-related work across all ITU-T Study Groups. Often working in cooperation with other standards development organizations (SDOs) and various ICT industry consortia, SG17 deals with a broad range of standardization issues.
