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
