LOS ANGELES – The Second Security, Stability and Resiliency of the DNS (SSR2) Review Team announced its leadership selections.

According to ICANN, three nominees volunteered themselves for a leadership position. The review team agreed by consensus to leadership by three co-chairs:

Denise Michel, Domain Name System Strategy and Management at Facebook, Inc. (GNSO nominee, North America)
Eric Osterweil, Principal Scientist at Verisign (RSSAC nominee, North America)
Emily Taylor, CEO at Oxford Information Labs Ltd, Associate Fellow Chatham House (GNSO nominee, Europe)
ICANN announced the selection of a 16-member team to conduct the SSR2 review in February 2017. The SSR review was formerly required under the Affirmation of Commitments and is now one of the Specific Reviews under the ICANN Bylaws. The review will examine ICANN's execution of its commitment to enhance the operational stability, reliability, resiliency, security, and global interoperability of the systems and processes, both internal and external, that directly affect, or are affected by, the Internet's system of unique identifiers that ICANN coordinates.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world. ICANN and its community help keep the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It also promotes competition and develops policy for the top-level of the Internet's naming system and facilitates the use of other unique Internet identifiers. For more information please visit:
