The Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) is driven by market needs and the insight of its global membership. With member companies from Asia, Europe, North America and South America, the organization currently is working on a variety of initiatives addressing ongoing and emerging messaging abuse issues, including bot mitigation, cooperative industry outreach, Web messaging abuse, DNS abuse, wireless messaging, senders issues and other topics.
M3AAWG is the only organization that targets messaging abuse by simultaneously focusing on the varied facets of the international challenge. Our committees are organized around technology, industry collaboration, cooperative public policy efforts and special interest groups. Projects are accomplished within these groups and their associated subcommittees. M3AAWG is a member of the London Action Plan (LAP) and has liaison relationships with the IETF and other organizations, and often joins forces with public policies agencies and other anti-abuse organizations.
I have seen this group grow from its beginning and ben involved for many years.
Full of dedicated people who strive to make a difference.
