Members meet-ups: February 2016

InternetNZ members are invited to one or more of our members meet-ups for the first part of 2016.  The point of these get-togethers is to give members the chance to mix and mingle with each other and with staff. We will share ideas about InternetNZ's work and future plans, and sometimes talk through some issues that rate a bit higher on the trickiness scale. Some nibbles and light refreshments will be provided. 

Staff will be bringing two items in particular to the table for these sessions:
  • InternetNZ's "focus areas" for 2016; and 

Celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori in the .nz domain name space

Language – it’s something we use every day, from the most casual conversation to the formality of education, government, and business. We often take it for granted. And, as many of us know, language is living – it evolves and transforms to meet our ever-changing needs.

Here in New Zealand, we have three official languages: English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language. This week, we’re focusing on te Reo Māori.

InternetNZ wants to hear from you about #fakenews

Join the discussion. We will use your input to inform our work, and put out a report later this year.

Filtering porn out of the Internet is back in the news again. To cut to the chase - don’t break the Internet in response to moral outrage about porn. There are other answers and solutions; the most important of which involve New Zealanders using the large number of solutions they have at their own disposal to manage content in their homes and with their families.

What we talk about when we talk about cyberattacks

NewsHub has put out a report on cyberattacks affecting our DHBs. We take a look at how the DHB has presented the threat, and talk about how we can better equip our businesses and our workforce to talk about cybersecurity.
