On Friday, 16 March the ICANN Board appointed Citizen Lab Senior Advisor Robert Guerra to the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC). Also appointed was Julie Hammer, independent director on the Board of auDA, the Australian ccTLD.

The SSAC is a diverse group of individuals whose expertise in specific subject matters enables the SSAC to fulfill its charter and execute its mission. Since its inception, the SSAC has invited individuals with deep knowledge and experience in technical and security areas that are critical to the security and stability of the Internet’s domain name system.

The SSAC’s continued operation as a competent body is dependent on the accrual of talented subject matter experts who have consented to volunteer their time and energies to the execution of the SSAC mission.

Robert Guerra is a special adviser to the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto and co-founder of Privaterra. Robert was previously a member of the SSAC from 2009 to 2010. Robert brings to the SSAC a civil society perspective in additional to his broad technical experience.
