The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) and the Pacific Islands Telecommunications Association (PITA) are jointly holding stakeholders seminars and training programs covering the following topics:

This program will be held in Suva, Fiji, at the Holiday Inn, 3-7 November 2008. It is the first in a series of similar programs to be conducted around major centres of the Pacific including PNG, Samoa, Tahiti and Micronesia.

Through hands-on training and community exchange, attendees will have the opportunity to increase their awareness and skill levels on Internet essentials and security. Of particular focus will be the growing need to minimize security vulnerability and address increasing cybercrime.

The agenda also includes a presentation by Paul Wilson, Director General of APNIC on 'Internet Address Depletion, IPv4 and IPv6'. He will join other regional Internet experts in a panel discussion of this issue in a Pacific Islands context on Wednesday, 6 November, 15:30-18:30.

APNIC trainers and Pacific Island regional liaison staff will also be onsite and available throughout the event.

Network operators, service providers, and administrators of IP networks are encouraged to attend. Registration is only available online.
