M3AAWG develops special initiatives and supports industry-government cooperative projects that we determine will make a significant difference in fighting online abuse. Our special initiatives include:
The Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Center has joined M3AAWG and will be attending our meetings and participating in M3AAWG committees and ongoing projects. LACNIC is the convening forum for the LAC Network Operators Group; LACSEC, the region’s Network Security Forum; and LAC-CSIRT, the regional Computer Secuirty Incident Response Team forum. As part of the mutual partnership, M3AAWG has also joined LACNIC and will be participating in their meetings to engage with these service providers and online security communities.
To help strengthen Asian efforts to protect the internet and online users an independent regional offshoot of the global Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group has been founded to focus on cybersecurity issues related to Japan’s unique challenges- JPAAWG.
Over the past few years, M3AAWG has worked with AfricaCERT and other organizations to present its mission and raise awareness of the resources M3AAWG has available to the region. M3AAWG subject matter experts have provided overviews of topics such as DDoS Mitigation, BGP Hijacking Defense, and Abuse Desk best practices at multiple African Internet Summits.
