Updates and Commentary from the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group

As a founding member of M3AAWG, J.D. Falk embodied the mission of the group in his quest to make messaging and the internet a better place. In his memory, the group offers the J.D. Falk Award annually. We think J.D. would have been pleased to learn of the 2021 recipients: Coalition Against StalkWare, represented by Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Tara Hairston, executive director of the Coalition Against Stalkerware.

The lab describes itself as “an interdisciplinary laboratory…focusing on research and development at the intersection of information and communication technologies, human rights, and global security.” Of course, this mission aligns closely with that of M3AAWG.

The Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) will host its 53rd general meeting October 11-14 virtually. Members from internet service and email providers, networking and communications companies, security vendors and social networking companies will exchange updates, ideas and efforts to improve cybersecurity, reduce online abuse and protect user data and privacy online.

Please join us on July 27th for our first live Engagement Series event. Open Source Applications for the Anti-Abuse Ecosystem is our newest M3AAWG initiative started last month after the Open Round Table discussions held during the 52nd general meeting. The facilitated live discussion will touch on Open Source Application characteristics, challenges, and types of messaging and abuse related applications (MTA/SMTP/abuse/authentication) as a starting point.
