***The comments I post on circleid are my own, personal point of view. Unless explicitly stated, they do not under any circumstances represent any official statement by, or viewpoint of my employer***

Suresh Ramasubramanian provides strategic vision and leadership on antispam and cybersecurity, and is currently Architect, Antispam and Compliance at IBM's LotusLive iNotes division.

Previous jobs include eight years as Head, Antispam at Outblaze, a Hong Kong based messaging provider with over 40 million users, whose messaging assets were acquired by IBM in 2009.
Before that, Suresh worked on the Security and Abuse desk at Juno.com (now United Online) for a brief period of time, and then worked at a regional Indian ISP, BPL Innovision.

Suresh has been actively lobbying for realistic solutions at technological, legislative and policy levels to spam since 1998. He is coordinator of anti-spam NGO APCAUCE, and serves as Fellowships Chair for APRICOT, the largest network operators conference in the asiapac region.

He has worked on a field research project on cybersecurity for developing countries for the ITU, in association with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, and has earlier written research papers on spam for the OECD Anti-Spam Toolkit and for UNDP/APDIP.

He has given well-received talks and keynote speeches on spam around the world at conferences organized by the OECD and ITU, as well as at industry events like MAAWG.

He has been a regular media spokesman on these issues, being widely interviewed and quoted over the past several years in publications including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Foreign Policy Magazine, Businessweek, the Washington Post, Wired and PC Magazine.

Businessweek magazine profiled Suresh as #19 in its 2002 list of top 25 e-business professionals.
