M3AAWG releases Operation Safety-Net, Best Practices for government, business and industry outlining the online threats with the proven practices to mitigate them

If you follow the efforts of the team at Hedgehog Hosting, you know that through our relationship with the i2Coalition, we are actively engaged with M3AAWG, the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group.  This group meets three times a year not only to discuss abuse issues that plague our industry but to actually establish real working groups and committees that come up with concrete ways  to mitigate issues such as spam, malware, phishing, hacking and other related hazards.

For the past two years, Richard Feller has represented Hedgehog as a member of the team that comprises M3AAWG's Hosting Committee.  As a member of this Committee, Hedgehog has been on the front line of the discussions and the possible remediations of these threats.  To that end, we have come up with our final draft of a Best Practice document called Operation Safety-Net.  This document focuses on five main areas and their related best practices.

  1.    Malware and Botnets
  2.    Phishing and Social Engineering
  3.    Internet Protocol and Domain Name System (DNS) Exploits
  4.    Mobile, Voice over IP (VoIP) and Telephony Threats
  5.    Hosting and Cloud Threats

Operation Saftey-Net doesn’t just describe today’s threats.  It provides straightforward, recommended best practices for governments, businesses, educators and other members of the Internet and mobile industry to join in the fight against these threats. The report is a synopsis of the current risk environment and was a truely global collaborative effort from the industry partners that fight spam, malware, phishing, hacking and related hazards.

M3AAWG Chairman Michael Adkins said, “Operation Safety-Net isn’t just for network or operational professionals.  It aggregates the anti-abuse industry’s global experience in identifying and curtailing current threats to help non-technical executives understand and manage online risk in their organizations.”   To that end we are pleased to share this document with our clients and collegues and we encourage everyone to review it while looking at their own internal networks

Hedgehog Hosting is pleased to have been a major contributor to the Hosting and Cloud Threats section as well as a contributor to the many of the other sections that involve the infrastructure threats in general.  Operation Safety-Net has been officially posted on the M3AAWG website and can be found at:
