Dear Allesandro and all, We jointly organised this event with SOCA (Serious Organised Crime Agency, UK). Several staff from the RIPE NCC attended, ARIN and Brian Nisbet. There were a lot of LEAs including Europol, we have presented on several issues including RIPE policies and on this task force. There was quite a bit of interest in the task force but at this point in time non of the LEAs will directly participate but when needed when issues arise that are crucial to LEAs we can invite them to join us for that topic. I will make sure that several LEAs will be informed on the progress and on issues popping up in this task force. Regarding particpation from other government institutions like Certs, Kauto Huopio from FI-CERT has joined the acm-tf in the last weeks. Looking at the size of the tf and representation of different areas we have a good set. If needed in the future we can invite the ones that are relevant to the topic.
