On 10 February, the Strategic Trade Research Institute published this report. Drawing upon existing best practices, risk assessments, surveys, interviews, and stakeholder feedback, it aims to empower governments with tools, in the form of good practices, with which to conduct outreach to emerging technology sectors that could be targeted by non-State actors for malicious purposes. The report authors have identified an advanced outreach model, Outreach 2.0, that can be used by countries to enhance compliance with UN Security Council Resolution 1540. Outreach 2.0 consists of a more customized, targeted, creative, real-time, and collaborative communication strategy between regulators and technology holders that builds trust, support, knowledge-sharing, and inclusion.
I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
