LACNIC and the Latin American Operational Security Community Joins Forces With M3AAWG to Combat Online Threats
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2016) - LACNIC, the regional Internet registry for the Latin America and Caribbean region, has joined the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group to collaborate on global cybersecurity issues. LACNIC is also the convening forum for the LAC Network Operators Group; LACSEC, the region's Network Security Forum; and LAC-CSIRT, a regional security incident response forum. As part of a mutual partnership to fight online threats, M3 AAWG has also joined LACNIC to engage with these service providers and online security communities.
The ongoing engagement will provide M3 AAWG access to regional expertise on operational and anti-abuse trends and the opportunity to develop relevant joint solutions that address current cybersecurity and cybercrime trends. LACNIC, the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Center, will gain access to the diverse experience of the M3 AAWG membership and its ongoing work developing best practices.
To foster this partnership, several M3 AAWG members will participate in the LACNIC 25 meeting on May 2-6, 2016 in Havana, Cuba. They will engage with LACNIC, LACNOG, LACSEC and LAC-CSIRT to identify future collaboration projects and to adapt existing M3 AAWG best practices to accommodate region-specific needs. LACNIC members will also be attending future M3 AAWG meetings, which are held three times a year.
"By participating in M3 AAWG, we can actively engage with leading researchers and experts from around the world on what anti-abuse techniques perform well, and why they do, while sharing our regional perspective. A better understanding of M3 AAWG best practices can help improve our local cybersecurity efforts, minimize threats and create more economic opportunities for our Latin American citizens," said Graciela Martinez, LACNIC's WARP (Warning, Advice and Reporting Point) Coordinator.
LACNIC is a non-governmental organization that manages the delegation of number resources, such as IP addresses and Autonomous System Numbers that are necessary for Internet connectivity and routing. LACNIC meetings serve as a convening forum for regional operator communities, such as LACNOG, and for security communities such as LACSEC. LACNIC also facilitates initiatives that support an open, stable and secure Internet within its assigned territory of South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
M3 AAWG Board of Directors Vice Chairperson Sara Roper said, "With LACNIC participating in our meetings and ongoing initiatives, we can better understand and address the issues specific to Latin America as we strive to make the online experience safer for everyone. As a LACNIC member, we will also be working to adapt the best practices developed by the global M3 AAWG membership to this important region."
M3 AAWG has published over 40 papers and best practices defining proven processes for preventing or mitigating online threats. It is a global industry association where vetted operational and public policy security specialists from over 20 countries come together in a confidential environment to share information, develop best practices and identify strategies to combat bots, malware, spam, viruses, DoS attacks and other online exploits.
Many M3AAWG best practices address issues specific to Internet service providers and other industry segments that are relevant to LACNIC members. For example, M3 AAWG has published best practices to help service providers protect mobile messaging, anti-phishing best practices for ISPs, and guidelines on using a walled garden to contain malware infections.
LACNIC, the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry, is an international non-government organization established in Uruguay in 2002. It is responsible for assigning and administrating Internet numbering resources (IPv4, IPv6), Autonomous System Numbers, Reverse Resolution and other resources for the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. It is one of the five Regional Internet Registries that exist worldwide.
LACNIC contributes to Internet development in the region through an active cooperation policy, promoting and defending the regional community's interests and helping create conditions that will allow the Internet to become an effective instrument for social inclusion and economic development in benefit of all Latin American and Caribbean countries and citizens.
