The Internet Society and APNIC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate in supporting the MANRS initiative in the Asia Pacific Region. Paul Wilson (APNIC) and Rajnesh Singh (ISOC) signed the MoU in Brisbane, Australia on 13 June 2018.
It’s an exciting moment for everyone who believes that Internet routing security issues can be resolved through collaboration, providing limitless opportunities for good. The MoU formalises the existing long-term relationship between the two organizations to have a global, open, stable and secure Internet.
The MoU focuses on capacity building to undertake initiatives and activities to promote awareness of MANRS in the Asia-Pacific region, to cooperate and render mutual assistance, and to encourage the attendance of APNIC members to meetings, seminars, workshops and/or conferences on routing security.
Both organizations have agreed to exchange research information and training materials (whether printed, audio or visual) related to routing security in general. APNIC has a proven record of delivering hands-on and online quality training and providing analytical research data.
We look forward to welcoming more MANRS members from the Asia Pacific region, and working together with APNIC to improve routing security around the world.
