International Business information Communication
Who We Are
The USCIB Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) Committee is composed of USCIB member companies representing a range of business and industry sectors. Advocacy priorities are determined that reflect consensus among the members.
The Committee advocates for policies characterized by free and fair competition, minimal government intervention and free information flows that ensure the continued growth of ICTs in a range of strategic forums:
- The UN’s World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) process and the Internet Governance Forum (IGF)
- The OECD
- The APEC Electronic Commerce Steering Group
- The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)
- Advocate a multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance and promote policies and initiatives aimed at promoting private sector investment and competition.
- Ensure that privacy regulations do not prove overly burdensome to business operations, hamper innovation, or impede legitimate cross-border data flows, while realizing regulatory interoperability.
- Promote a risk management-based approach to cybersecurity that enables business to flexibly implement appropriate market-driven, voluntary, consensus-based internationally recognized standards.
- Support continued private sector leadership of the technical management of the Domain Name System.
- Oppose overly broad local data storage requirements.
Why This Matters
- The digital economy permeates everything, and non-traditional ICT companies rely on ICTs to do their business.
- The digital economy can deliver the solutions and innovations needed to create jobs and spur economic growth only if policies enable private sector opportunities to invest and promote cross-border data flows.
- A shift away from the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance toward a more government-dominated approach will hamper the innovative potential of the Internet and snuff the dynamic growth of the ICT sector.

For example, my boss sends me and my colleagues a memo about a meeting on August 11th; the memo contains the agenda for the meeting. This is an example of internal communication-- it is disseminated only to the people in my de…
