Steps For Anti-Spam Environment

In 2005, the Outblaze Head of Anti-Spam Operations, Suresh Ramasubramanian, presented a report to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development about spam awareness and control in developing countries.[9] The Office of the Telecom Authority (OFTA) of Hong Kong consulted about the anti spam movements for improved security of its Internet services. With Outblaze's help, the government of Hong Kong adopted a range of measures to effectively combat spam, which include opt-in standards, prompt removal of spammers and hacked or insecure systems, adoption of authenticated email schemes, unequivocal anti-spam legislation, rapid response times at ISPs, and diffusion of better email marketing management techniques. The response was approved and endorsed by the Asia-Pacific chapter of the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (CAUCE).[10]
