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

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.

In the eighth episode of M3AAWG 5, we continued the discussion on mitigating online abuse and what we have learned along the way!
