A PACIFIC Information, Communication Technology (ICT) specialist has been appointed to a vice president position of the world internet body, ICANN — the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

Savenaca Vocea's promotion as vice president — Australasia/Pacific Islands — was announced this week by the president of ICANN, Fadi Chehadé.

Mr Vocea, originally from Fiji, and based in Brisbane, Australia is one of the four new vice presidents of ICANN.

"Coming from the Pacific region, I am grateful and honoured to be working under a leadership team that has empowered us to improve efforts to serve the region better. We will listen to as many interested stakeholders and the local Internet community discussing and collaborating on issues centering around ICANN's remit and management of the internets domain names system."

Mr Vocea, who was in Suva last week, spoke on the new generic Top Level Domains (new gTLD) program update at the Pacific ICT Centre and met the USP officials to discuss .FJ registry best practices. There was general encouragement for names registry in the Pacific to deploy Domain Names Systems Security Extensions (DNSSEC) as a tool to prevent data modification at the registry level that will trickle down to end users of the internet.

He also addressed the inaugural Tech Youth Camp for Fiji introducing the participating youths to ICANN.
