CAUCE Director Neil Schwartzman Wins Prestigious MAAWG Award

Neil Schwartzman, CAUCE Executive DirectorCAUCE Executive Director Neil Schwartzman (CircleID) won the prestigious Mary Litynski award on June 08, 2011 for his contributions to Internet anti-abuse efforts, including the passage of Canada's Anti-Spam Law. Following is an excerpt from Schwartzman acceptance speech:

"These are the things that motivate me to voluntarily advocate for the anti-abuse community. Because along with all these commercial offerings, there is still a fundamental, precious human element, a drawing together of the global village that criminals, if we let them, would rend asunder. There is still real, honest human communication — that abusers sully. This human element is the magic intrinsic to the Internet, and something that must be protected. It isn’t just about email systems being spammed, and websites under ddos. It is what they represent — the people, the data, and the ability to communicate — that we strive to protect."
