People find the internet really convenient because it has simplified the way transactions are carried out worldwide. People can buy and sell goods online and can also communicate with others through the internet quite easily. There are social platforms to share content such as videos and other information between users through the internet. The internet is made complete by some businesses which provide needed resources to other service providers to make it possible for users to get the services. For users to continue enjoying the internet services, these service providers need to be allowed to do necessary things without unnecessary restriction from authorities. Services provided through the internet are monitored and regulated by a body called the internet infrastructure coalition.
The privacy of information sent and received by a user is kept confidential for that user by this coalition. There are malicious people such as hackers who steal information from users and use this as an advantage to blackmail or ruin their reputation. The internet is very powerful and some nations may want to take control of it which would lead to discrimination and use it for personal gains. Keeping the internet open is great to restrict those who would deny others the chance to use the several services it provides. Access to user data is regulated by the coalition to protect them from people and governments who would violate their rights.
The service providers are at times required to grant access to authorities to data of certain users for various reasons such as security. To make it fair, the coalition ensures that the authorities strictly follow given rules and laws that govern the access to user data. User actions while using a certain platform makes the platform answerable to whatever the user did through their platform. Service providers may find it inconvenient when held responsible and the coalition has suggested for the law to hold users responsible and not the service providers. It is the duty of the body to raise awareness to about the benefits of the internet so that the rules made do not make it hard for services to be given.
Due to the fact that many businesses operate online using the internet, it is true to say it plays a role in the global economy. For digital trade, rules are given that users must follow to make it open and discourage those who would steal. Transparent transactions are emphasized by the body for all users. It is also their job go create awareness about encryption and security measures used in the internet to make users and firms secure from threats.
