Session on DNS abuse during pandemic held at IGF 2020
https://cctld.ru/en/media/news/industry/26856/

Social Media

14 Nov:  Dear APTLD Members, Happy Diwali!

Email is not going to disappear. Possibly ever. Until the robots kill us all. With EAI on the rise, will they be able to recognize the sender? If not, perhaps, EAI holds more potential than we could ever imagine? Read more: https://www.wiseoldsayings.com/email-quotes/#ixzz6cvH7z8lIThe
Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG) has published a new report: Considerations for Naming Internationalized Email Mailboxes https://uasg.tech/wp-content/uploads/documents/UASG028-en-digital.pdf

At the pre-IGF session, Marc Rogers of CTI League and OCTA shows how geeks can stand together to help the humanity and shares interesting statistics. He also stressed that the international multistakeholder voluntary collaboration was truly astounding but findings should make everyone promptly revise their cybersec policies.    Photos

Happening now (2 Nov): a pre-IGF session to set the tone for the global gathering, which for the first time ever is held online. Unsurprisingly, it is about DNS and COVID19, namely, DNS Abuse in the Age of COVID19. With a focus on educational aspects of and around DNS it looks and sounds just like the moderator’s tie – just not particularly spectacular; however, it carries a certain value for a first-timer or someone outside of the industry    Photo
