«The workshop was set up in order to bring technical and non-technical
anti-spam experts together to give an overview about current situation
in the area of anti-spam. Professionals from both sides gave
contributions about spam trends, current legal and technical anti-spam
issues and newest research results.

Discussions during the workshop made clear that providers are fighting
spam, but need support from different areas. In general, support from
legal experts is highly appreciated by providers. They often seem to
stumble in difficult legal aspects regarding email or virus filtering.
This workshop made clear which measures are actually desirable and
required by policy makers. Moreover, providers welcomed the efforts from
research institutes developing new anti-spam technologies.

All in all, the results of the workshop and ENISA’s upcoming deliverable
on provider security measures give a comprehensive overview about
current anti-spam best practice. However, during the workshop it raised
up that spam should be considered as a symptom of network abuse. Solving
spam therefore requires, next to current efforts, also approaches to
mitigate net abuse in general. As a consequence, ENISA will concentrate
next year on resilience as a main part of its Working Programme 2008 and
put forth efforts making network abuse more transparent to legal and
technical experts.»
