LU-CIX, the first exchange node to support the Paris Call!

LU-CIX took advantage of the annual Luxembourg Internet Days event, which took place last week and put France in the spotlight, to announce its support for the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace.

On 12 November 2019, while the first anniversary ceremony of the Call, launched by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, took place in Paris, LU-CIX affirmed its support for the principles of neutrality, openness, stability and accessibility to ensure a secure Cyberspace in which international human rights laws can be applied.

Mounir Mahjoubi, Secretary of State for Digital Affairs in France at the time of the launch of the Paris Call last November, joined the Luxembourg Internet Days to share his vision for the development of a more inclusive digital environment that increases the resilience and skills of users in Europe and around the world.

“It was important for us, through our support for the Paris Call, to reaffirm the principles we have always embraced for a neutral, open and ethical Internet. We are today the only Internet Exchange node in the world, among the 74 states, 24 public bodies, 333 organizations and 608 private sector companies, including Luxembourg, and some of our members such as EBRC, POST Cyberforce, Proximus or SECURITYMADEIN.LU” says Frederique Ulrich, Business Development Manager and organizer of the event, “Openly supporting the Paris Call at the Luxembourg Internet Days seemed like a good way to raise awareness among local players about this initiative to improve the protection of individuals and critical infrastructure.”
