In September 2012, the ETIS Anti-Spam Co-operation group held a meeting in Munich, Germany which was kindly hosted by eleven. The event was attended by 24 people from a variety of companies including Abusix, Cloudmark, Fastweb, France Telecom, Return Path, Swisscom, TDC, Telecom Italia, Telenor, Trend Micro, and Vade-Retro. The group also welcomed two new members in Deutsche Telekom and Elion.
The group also welcomed two new members from Deutsche Telekom and
Elion. Summarising the successful meeting, Guido De Vries from our host
eleven said: "It was a pleasure for eleven and myself to host the
Anti-Spam meeting in Munich and enjoy the modernity and tradition of
Munich together with our industry friends for constructive discussions
and informal networking – we’re really looking forward to meeting soon
As during previous meetings, the main goal was
to discuss how to reduce spam levels on the Telcos networks and how to
deal with the latest threats. Additionally, the group exchanged
information and views on feedback loops, Phishing, mobile spam, and
compromised accounts. The meeting also focused on the progress and
experiences of the ETIS – Return Path Feedback Loop project.
Furthermore, ETIS would like
to take this opportunity to thank Sergio Formicola from Telecom Italia
for his excellent job as Chairman of the group during the past four
years. The group elected Helge Aksdal and Vegard Asmul from Telenor to
co-chair the group and chose Frank Lindberg from TDC and Mathieu Girol
from France Telecom to act as the new Vice-Chairs.
