Today *Wednesday February 25 2015* the *U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce,
Science, and Transportation* <http://www.commerce.senate.gov/> will convene
a hearing – *Preserving the Multistakeholder Model of Internet Governance
in Washington DC. As the U.S. government considers relinquishing control
over certain aspects of Internet governance to the private sector, concerns
remain that the loss of U.S. involvement over the Internet Assigned Numbers
Authority (IANA) could empower foreign powers – acting through
intergovernmental institutions or other surrogates – to gain increased
control over critical Internet functions. Featuring testimony from the U.S.
government official assessing the threat to the Internet and the CEO of
ICANN, the hearing will examine the potential benefits and preparedness of
non-governmental actors to protect Internet governance functions from
attempted interference by foreign governments. Witnesses: *Fadi Chehadé*,
CEO, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN);
Ambassador *David Gross*, Partner, Wiley Rein LLP, and former U.S.
Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy, U.S.
Department of State; and *Lawrence Strickling*, Assistant Secretary for
Communications and Information and Administrator, National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), U.S. Department
of Commerce.

*What: Preserving the Multistakeholder Model of Internet Governance
*Where: Washington DC*
*When: Wednesday February 25 2015 10am-11:30am EST | 15:00-16:30 UTC*
