    ICANN Org Report to the Board
    Office of the CEO
    Göran Marby, President & CEO


    This reporting period has been an incredibly busy one, with many important projects progressing at the same time. I’ve spent a significant amount of my time supporting efforts to develop a proposed Unified Access Model (UAM) based on the Technical Study Group’s technical model. I’ve also been engaging with the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), as well as the Data Protection Authorities (DPAs), to obtain more clarity and guidance on whether such a model would be compliant with the framework laid out in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Their feedback is critical in ensuring the work being undertaken is on the right track toward full compliance with the law.

    When I joined ICANN, one of the most important strategic changes we made was the creation of regions. This allowed us to refocus our efforts, which were previously very siloed, to ensure that regardless of what department someone works for, their work is a part of a unified regional strategy. This change in strategy has also increased our ability to better support teams outside of our Los Angeles office.

    As a part of this regional strategy, I’ve been taking time to engage directly with these teams by visiting each of our regional offices. This is an important opportunity for me to better understand the unique needs and challenges of each one of the regions, their pressing issues, and identify new ways to build capacity and increase participation and awareness.
