Last week the ETIS Anti-Abuse Telco Network held a meeting in Hilversum, The Netherlands, which was kindly hosted by KPN. It was attended by 33 people from a variety of companies including KPN, Belgacom, TDC, Telenor, Elion, Orange, Swisscom, Internet Society of China, Abusix, Return Path, Kaspersky, Ericsson, Eleven, Vade Retro, Symantec and Spamhaus. The meeting marked the first time the Internet Society of China has co-operated with a European Telco Association. This was very useful as ETIS members were able to establish direct contact with the body responsible for dealing with abuse within and coming out of China.

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 malware, botnet suppression, spam trends and statistics, DMARC implementation progress, broadband spam and finalized the update of the ETIS Anti Spam Best Practices 2014 document. The meeting also focused on the progress and experiences of the ETIS – Return Path Feedback Loop project and possible to ways to expand the circle of participants and the scope of information exchanged. 

ETIS is pleased to announce that Florian Kunkel from Deutsche Telekom was elected as a second Vice-Chair of the group supporting Frank Lindberg from TDC (Vice-Chair) and Vegar Asmul and Helge Aksdal from Telenor (Co-Chairs). The group would also like to express their thanks to Return Path for sponsoring a very pleasant group dinner. 

The next meeting will take place on 25-26 September 2014. For more information on how to join this group, please contact Fred Werner at:
