The Internet Society of Australia (ISOC-AU) vice president, Narelle Clark, has been elected to the global ISOC Board of Trustees.
Clark is a data communications and Internet specialist who has worked in advanced technology throughout her career, and specialised in the application of networks and systems.
She has been a user, builder, operator and researcher of Internet networks since 1986, both for major telecommunications providers and research agencies.
ISOC-AU president, Tony Hill, said Clark’s election was a testament to her knowledge and understanding of the Internet and Internet technology.
Clark joins leaders from industry, academia, and the global Internet community on the ISOC Board.
The ISOC-AU is a non-profit society founded in 1996 and a part of the worldwide Internet Society that represents the interests of Internet users.
The group recently voiced its criticism of the Federal Government’s mandatory ISP-level content filter, arguing ISPs should have no role in determining what content their customers can access.
Computerworld Australia also reported on its vocal stance on the National Broadband Network (NBN) and how it should have Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) enabled at a network level.
