At each of our annual February General Meetings, M3AAWG honors Mary Litynski, whose relentless work ethic solidified the early success of General Meetings and guided our organization to help create a safer online ecosystem for all. This award recognizes a member of our community who exhibits Litynski’s spirit by facilitating industry collaboration and whose lifetime achievements have been instrumental in driving anti-abuse initiatives forward.

Welcome to the second episode of M3AAWG 5, our new video series where we interview members and experts on emerging threats or prominent issues across the industry. 


In a year defined by the COVID-19 pandemic – and the resulting surge in cyberattacks – the online anti-abuse community came together to protect end-users across the globe. As the pandemic surpasses the one-year mark, with both COVID-19 cases and online abuse reaching record heights, our efforts remain vital in supporting businesses and individuals in staying safe in the real world and online. To this end, M3AAWG will host its 51st General Meeting, held virtually from February 15-18, 2021, gathering members from across the globe to collaborate around today’s most pressing cyber threats.

Since the inception of M3AAWG, our mission has remained focused on combating online abuse – regardless of where it occurs – through industry collaboration. Online abuse does not stop at national borders and neither does our work.
