After my research efforts, I now see the internet routing system as fragile and insecure. The steering committee represents an opportunity to steward the industry across the globe towards a more robust and secure internet routing system. With involvement in internet governance, community training and operational conferences in the Asia Pacific region I am well placed to evangelise the mission of MANRS and promote good routing security principles across the region.
