Question 1:  Will current security and privacy mechanisms continue to work effectively in the new Multilingual internet and Landsape Ecosystem"MILE"? 

Question 2: If not, what needs to be done, and how?

New Cyber Security threats are growing by the day. Privacy risks and challenges are not only huge but are already daunting. The Snowden Revelations, the Heartbleed security crisis, ,  the launch of New gTLDs, the ripples of the seismic change to the global internet,  recent ISIS global threats and cyber wars played for political motives by Governments and thru business enterprises, and the reality of the New "MILE" with billions new users in new languages never seen on the net all present exponential new cyber security threats and privacy critical risks and challenges that render traditional  approaches to mitigate these new risks ineffective in the New "MILE".

These risks can only be effectively addressed proactively when Governments, Regulators, Business, NGOs and end users al cooperate at locally and global levels. Otherwise they all stand to become their next victims?

2-Will current blocking lists compiled by local and international law enforcements/ISPs be sufficient to tackle the challenges of more than a hundred IDN gTLDs? If not, what needs to be updated?  

3- How can local communities’ stakeholders be turned motivated & proactive in safe guarding their local internet and its content for a safe online experience for children?

4- How can the functionalities of reporting hotlines on child sexual abuse materials be updated to reflect the newer needs and challenges of  the new internet (both in terms of report collection and their analysis.

5- The new Internet will create new virtual markets and locations, new audience, but will also create new potential child victims as new avenues for interacting with children emerge - How can stakeholders prepare to mitigate these new challenges that will increase the possibilities of local child sex offenders on the new Internet reaching out to children who can speak and understand their local language. How can jurisdictional law enforcements be improved?

6-  How to turn unsuspecting unaware local stakeholders from becoming prospective victims to empowered ready and enabled stakeholders in the new Multilingual Internet?

New gTLDs in their different forms like City gTLDs, IDN gTLDs, Generic gTLDs and Brand gTLDs represent the biggest change to the internet infrastructure since its birth decades ago.. With them come great new opportunities and grave new risks to be considered when planning or reassessing your Internet presence and activities locally or globally whether you plan to use them or not.

Are more than 1000 New gTLDs relevant to you? How? why? Which ones? What will the many new gTLDs like .Music .shop .ceo .app or .dubai or .istanbul or .london and many others change in your organisation's strategic planning and operations and to people’s daily lives locally and globally? Should you care? Why? What is the Value to me of a City gTLD i.e. .Berlin  .London .Abu Dhabi  .Dubai | .Hanover etc? Will Chinese, Arabic, Cyrillic New gTLDs change my life?

Case studies by new Registry operators and their unique business models.
