M3AAWG, London Action Plan Release Best Practices to Address Online and Mobile Threats

Best Practices to Address Online and Mobile Threats – Prepared by members of the London Action Plan and M3AAWG. (Download Full Report)A cooperative international report was released last week outlining Internet and mobile best practices aimed at curtailing malware, phishing, spyware, bots and other Internet threats. It also provides extensive review of current and emerging threats. "Best Practices to Address Online and Mobile Threats” is a comprehensive assessment of Internet security as it stands today and explains in non-technical language the proactive steps that can help mitigate risks, according to the report's two major contributors, the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) and the London Action Plan (LAP).

The report is also one of the first global efforts to encourage governments to deploy best practices, which are more often associated with businesses. It focuses on four major areas of concern: malware and botnets, social engineering and phishing, IP and DNS exploits, and mobile threats. To encourage government participation, it has been presented to the 34-member country OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-Development) for review.
