On November 25, 2014, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar on the “Potential for Change in Internet Governance & Implications for International Cybersecurity Policy”.
The webinar highlighted the current debate on Internet governance and the implications on cybersecurity at the international level, knowing that the United States has indicated its desire to further develop control of the IANA function and that Brazil hosted Net Mundial in April 2014 as a global forum on the future of the multi-stakeholder Internet governance model.
The webinar was presented by Dr. Kevin Newmeyer who is currently the Senior Operations Director for the CREATE™ project of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program. Dr. Newmeyer has successfully held a variety of positions in the military, academia, international civil service, and the private sector. His research focuses on international policy issues in cybersecurity. Along with his PhD in Public Policy from Walden University, Dr. Newmeyer’s educational career is highlighted by his selection as an Olmsted Scholar which enabled him to earn his MA in International Relations from the Instituto Universitario Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, Spain. He holds additional degrees from Escuela Diplomática of Spain (Diplomado de Estudios Internacionales), George Mason University (MBA), and the US Naval Academy (BS). Dr. Newmeyer is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.
