RIPE NCC Open House: Anti-Abuse

View the recording

How do you experience the Internet today? Have you ever encountered a situation where you felt that something bad was being done to you or your network? If you have never had that feeling, then you may have a very good abuse manager!

In the session abuse experts talked about how to run an abuse desk: one of the essential but undervalued roles on the Internet.

We discussed various questions such as: Why is this role so critical? How does it affect network operations? What does it take to run an effective abuse desk? Can you recommend any best practices?
