Tony Rutkowski appointed Rapporteur for Cybersecurity for ITU-T
Tony Rutkowski was made the Rapporteur for Cybersecurity by the Plenary of the International Telecommunication Union - Telecommunications Standardization (ITU-T) Study Group 17 (Security) meeting at Geneva. This venue is the principal global intergovernmental-industry body for collaboration on worldwide cybersecurity standards. Rapporteurs typically are appointed for four years to lead participants from governments and industry around the world in study, dialogue, and preparation of technical standards to meet cybersecurity needs, including liaison with other cybersecurity forums. The ubiquitous security standard for PKI, X.509, is a well-known example of the work. He will be the senior representative from the U.S. involved in this work, and assisted by Associate Rapporteur experts from Korea's national ETRI institute and Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology.
Tony is VeriSign's VP for regulatory affairs and standards, a member of the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC) Advisory Board, and a Distinguished Senior Research Fellow at the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech.
