About the Organisation

The coordinators are bringing this forum to the industry on a non-commercial basis. Charges will be used to fund venue hire and logistical costs. No membership of any organisation or venue is required to participate. However, participants must work in a role connected with anti-abuse activity or technology to participate. The coordinators will have full discretion as to attendance and content. A note summary will be distributed after the meeting, on an anonymous basis, once reviewed by attendees. None of the outcomes will be considered legal advice or form any precedent. Rather, the forum is intended solely for discussion for those across the industry, in any relevant capacity.
