Air Force General to Outline New Cyber Security Defense Mission

Meeting Will Advance Industry Cooperation on Messaging Security

Promoting global cooperation against spam and other online abuse, the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) will focus on critical technical and public policy issues at its fall meeting, including bot mitigation, Web messaging abuse, and mobile spam among other topics. U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. David B. Warner will keynote the three-day event, outlining the government's new military cyber security defense initiative, and several invited Internet organizations will join the meeting as MAAWG works to forge closer ties among industry, government and public policy agencies.

The MAAWG 17th General Meeting will be held in Philadelphia on Oct. 26-28 with professional development training courses on Oct. 29. The event will provide an opportunity for messaging professionals to share methodologies and ideas for curtailing online abuse.

Warner will discuss how the Air Force Space Command (AFSC), as the lead Air Force authority for cyberspace resources, is organizing, training and equipping the military's cyber security defense efforts and its potential for future relationships with private industry. The general is director of communications and information and chief information officer at Headquarters AFSC, and is responsible for integrating cyber security defense policies, architecture and capabilities.

Technical and public policy working sessions will address domain registrar anti-abuse tactics, DNS management, and senders' data exchange and customer service issues. A mobile messaging update will include an overview of the proposed mobile spam act S.788 by a U.S. Senate legislative aid, and there will be invitation-only sessions for ISPs to discuss anti-abuse techniques.

The meeting also will feature panels with representatives of other Internet security and anti-abuse organizations focusing on how the industry can best apply the special skills of each group. Invited organizations include
