The upcoming 56th general meeting of the Messaging Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) will feature a keynote by Erica Olsen, safety net project director of the National Network to End Domestic Violence(NNEDV).
M3AAWG has worked on a number of issues related to protecting users online, and in 2021 recognized the Coalition Against Stalkerware with its J.D. Falk award.
Olsen’s keynote address will address rampant domestic violence, stalking and sexual abuse, often furthered by technology. Technology-facilitated abuse can include harassment, monitoring, tracking, isolation and financial abuse, and understanding how technology is misused is crucial to helping victims. The talk will include how abusers misuse technology and data and strategies technology companies can use to minimize technology facilitated abuse while also supporting victims’ use of technology.
Based on its mission to fight online abuse, M3AAWG has worked on a number of issues related to protecting users online, and in 2021 recognized the Coalition Against Stalkerware with its J.D. Falk award.
NNEDV offers additional tips and information on technology safety at www.TechSafety.org and on its social channels including Twitter and Facebook.
Also during the meeting, Dave Piscitello, partner at Interisle Consulting Group LLC, will present findings and recommendations from two recent studies of phishing and malware. Data from three million phishing reports, as well as analysis and recommendations about two and a half million records of malware will be shared.
Additional sessions will address IP6 deployment, deprecation of older versions of TLS, DKIM, identifying spoofed DDoS traffic, stopping unwanted calls, DMARC, domain name issues and more.
