Peter Coroneos -

Co-founder, International Internet Industry Alliance [IIIA]
(former CEO: IIA, Australia)

Peter Coroneos was formerly chief executive of the Internet Industry Association, the national trade association for Internet commerce, content and connectivity in Australia. In addition to his role as primary industry advocate, political strategist and spokesperson for the IIA, Peter drove the IIA’s policy development work and instigated the formation of specialist taskforces to leverage member expertise in diverse legal, economic and technical areas.

As part of his role, Peter was principle architect of the icode, a voluntary code of practice for ISPs which provides a uniform and coordinated response to addressing zombie botnet activity on networks. This work has attracted significant international attention and is being considered for implementation by several other jurisdictions. The ultimate aim is to provide a consistent international response to a serious global problem.

Peter was also principal author of the IIA’s 2006 “National Broadband Targets 2010”, a white paper acknowledged by the Australian Government as being a key driver in its decision to underwrite a near ubiquitous national FTTP network. This historic decision will form Australia’s single biggest infrastructure investment.

A specialist in Internet governance and joint industry-government co-operation, Peter has addressed audiences in the US, Europe, Asia and Africa.
