Joint press conference by Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, Member of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC, on the launch of the "No Disconnect Strategy"

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, and arl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, former German Federal Minister for Defence and Member of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), gave a joint press conference on the launch of the "No Disconnect Strategy". Neelie Kroes invited Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg to advise on how to provide ongoing support to Internet users, bloggers and cyber-activists living under authoritarian regimes. This appointment formed a key element of a new "No Disconnect Strategy" to uphold the EU's commitment to ensure human rights and fundamental freedoms were respected both online and off-line, and that internet and other information and communication technology (ICT) could remain a driver of political freedom, democratic development and economic growth.
The "No Disconnect Strategy" would assist people in four ways: Developing and providing technological tools to enhance privacy and security of people living in non-democratic regimes when using ICT; Educating and raising awareness of activists about the opportunities and risks of ICT, in particular assisting activists to make best use of tools such as social networks and blogs while raising awareness of surveillance risks when communicating via ICT; Gathering high quality intelligence about what is happening "on the ground" in order to monitor the level of surveillance and censorship at a given time, in a given place; Cooperation by developing a practical way to ensure that all stakeholders can share information on their activity and promote multilateral action and building cross-regional cooperation to protect human rights.
