annual freedom online conf

The annual Freedom Online Conference, the flagship event of the Freedom Online Coalition (FOC), took place in Accra, Ghana, from 6 to 7 February. The event brought together stakeholders from around the world to discuss issues relating to human rights-based internet. The Freedom Online Conference provided participants, including those from AFRINIC, the opportunity to meet with government officials and discuss issues of common interest. Especially important was the utilisation of the Internet and AFRINIC's role in the advancement of human rights in Africa.

Les Interruptions de routage ou attaques (détournements, fuites et usurpation) surviennent chaque jour sur Internet et conduisent à une série de problèmes. Ces derniers peuvent être soit des données volées, une perte de revenue, des dommages opérationnels et bien plus.

Ces incidents sont à considérer à une échelle globale car les soucis de routage qui se manifeste d’abord chez un gestionnaire réseau peuvent avoir des répercussions chez des autres.
