"Review fatigue" has been a persistent complaint within the ICANN Community. As our overlap timeline shows, there have been very few points in ICANN's history when there were no reviews, or only one review, in progress. The [[Third Accountability and Transparency Review]] has addressed this review glut head on. Among other reforms, the ATRT 3 team made the following recommendations:
 +
* Convert organizational reviews to "continuous improvement processes" within each [[Supporting Organizations|SO]] & [[Advisory Committee|AC]];
 +
* Utilize the feedback and findings of these continuous improvement processes, as well as annual meetings of the SOs and ACs, to inform a new, "holistic" review that engages with the ICANN organization as a whole; and
 +
* Reform or remove most of the [[ICANN Reviews#Specific Reviews|reviews required under Article 4.6]] of the ICANN Bylaws.
 +
 
 +
These changes would represent a massive transformation to ICANN's review practices. The ICANN Board, while accepting the proposals in principle, has requested ICANN staff to develop plans for pilot programs for continuous improvement and the holistic review. The modifications to the Article 4.6 specific reviews, because they would require amending the Bylaws, are subject to community buy-in and support.

    Featured Updates - The Domain Name System


    ICANN's job is to ensure the stability, security, and resiliency of the Domain Name System (DNS). The stability and security of the DNS is undermined in a variety of ways, which ICW Editor Jessica has been working to catalog. In addition, she has been focusing on responses to abuse from ICANN, such as DAAR and SAC115, other institutions in the private, and inter/government agencies, such as the European Council, FBI, CISA, and NIST.

    The stability of the DNS is the central focus of SSAC and enshrined in the ICANN Bylaws in multiple places. ICANN's performance of this critical task is also periodically reviewed as mandated by Article 4.6 of the bylaws. The First Security, Stability, and Resiliency Review took place in 2010, while the Second Security, Stability, and Resiliency Review is ongoing.

    If you work within this sphere, you might want to connect with fellow members of the ICANN community focused on cybersecurity.

    "Review fatigue" has been a persistent complaint within the ICANN Community. As our overlap timeline shows, there have been very few points in ICANN's history when there were no reviews, or only one review, in progress. The Third Accountability and Transparency Review has addressed this review glut head on. Among other reforms, the ATRT 3 team made the following recommendations:

    • Convert organizational reviews to "continuous improvement processes" within each SO & AC;
    • Utilize the feedback and findings of these continuous improvement processes, as well as annual meetings of the SOs and ACs, to inform a new, "holistic" review that engages with the ICANN organization as a whole; and
    • Reform or remove most of the reviews required under Article 4.6 of the ICANN Bylaws.

    These changes would represent a massive transformation to ICANN's review practices. The ICANN Board, while accepting the proposals in principle, has requested ICANN staff to develop plans for pilot programs for continuous improvement and the holistic review. The modifications to the Article 4.6 specific reviews, because they would require amending the Bylaws, are subject to community buy-in and support.
