APWG.EU Cybersecurity Awareness Symposium Examines Behavioral Interventions Against Cybercrime at Global Scale

APWG Monograph: ICANN interpretation of GDPR impedes cyberinvestigations


WhoisisclosedIn the aftermath of the adoption of the EU GDPR, ICANN’s policies for access to domain registration data (Whois) have created adverse consequences for investigations into terrorist activities, political influence campaigns and cybercrimes, creating serious threats to public safety.

In this APWG monograph, I explain how Whois data is employed during preventative and forensic cyber investigations – and how ICANN’s interpretation of GDPR in particular delays development of programmatic machine-driven responses that are widely used to maintain public safety and are vital to the long-term viability of the Internet as a governable domain.
