On Monday July 12, 2021 Director of the Domains & Jurisdiction Program Elizabeth Behsudi shared views at a workshop organized by the European Commission DG Connect. 

The workshop focused on DNS Abuse with an emphasis on its magnitude and efforts undertaken to measure and address abuse within the DNS.

It brought together representatives from law, academia, governments, law enforcement, DNS technical operators and international organisations.

Ms. Behsudi highlighted the work of the Domains & Jurisdiction Contact Group’s Toolkit on DNS Level Action to Address Abuses and presented key resources from the I&JPN Toolkit, which provides information on preserving the internet's technical layer when applying DNS level action to address abuses. It intends to support DNS operators in the design of their DNS abuse-related activities, notifiers in the detection and reporting of problematic activity within the DNS, as well as legislators, and law enforcement to determine procedures for dealing with different types of DNS Abuse.

About the Toolkit

The Toolkit is the result of broad consultations with key policy actors since the 1st Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network in 2016, and the tireless work of governments, companies, international organizations, civil society, technical operators, and academics who have collaborated to develop interoperable solutions to Domain Name System-level action to address abuses.

The Toolkit would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of I&JPN Domains & Jurisdiction Program Contact Group Members. The I&JPN Secretariat is immensely grateful for the hard work of stakeholders (Meet the Members here).
