Leading Anti-Spam Organizations Come Together To Fight Spam

The syndicate brings together all the leading organizations under one roof to better integrate the efforts to check the spammers who usually disturb law implication efforts by operating across the borders. In spite of improved blocking and filtering systems, spam continues to block the net, consuming bandwidth and circulating malicious programs.

The alliances' Website comprise of the information on anti-spam laws and implementation activities, business and consumer education, best methods to fight spam and international cooperation.

The initiative was established in conformity of the request of World Summit Information Society, 2005, Tunis that asked the members to tackle the growing and major problem of spam.
