Deadline Extended: SSAC2 Review Survey for Community Input

LOS ANGELES - The deadline to take the SSAC2 Survey has been extended until May 25, according to ICANN.
Analysis Group, the independent examiner conducting the second review of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC2), has published a survey for community input. The aim of the survey is to collect input from those who have interacted with SSAC or have suggestions for ways to improve it.

The survey will close on May 25th at 23:59 UTC. Following the close of the survey, Analysis Group will evaluate responses received along with input received via interviews and other forums as input to its assessment report. The assessment report is expected to be posted for community consultation in July 2018.

A periodic review of the SSAC is mandated by ICANN Bylaws Section 4.4. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the SSAC has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure and, if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness. The review will also determine if the SSAC is accountable to its constituencies, stakeholder groups, organizations, and other stakeholders. Analysis Group was selected to conduct the SSAC2 Review in February 2018.

As do all Organizational Reviews, the SSAC2 Review is following a two-phased approach, in which the independent examiner first completes its assessment and then makes recommendations to address the findings noted during the assessment. This approach contributes to more useful and relevant recommendations by providing an opportunity for the community and the independent examiner to discuss what works and what needs improvement before the independent examiner develops recommendations to address the observed situations.

The SSAC advises the ICANN community and Board on matters relating to the security and integrity of the Internet's naming and address allocation systems. This includes operational, administrative, and registration matters. SSAC engages in ongoing threat assessment and risk analysis of the Internet naming and address allocation services to assess where the principal threats to stability and security lie, and advises the ICANN community accordingly.
