The Azerbaijani Centre of Electronic Safety under the Communications and High Technologies Ministry has become member of the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). The membership will create opportunities for successful continuation of Azerbaijani electronic safety policy on the international arena.
The APWG, established in 2003 as the Anti-Phishing Working Group, is an industry association focused on unifying the global response to cybercrime. The organization provides a forum for responders and managers of cybercrime to discuss phishing and cybercrime issues, to consider potential technology solutions, to access data logistics resources for cyber security applications and for cybercrime forensics, to cultivate the university research community dedicated to cybercrime and to advise government, industry, law enforcement and treaty organizations on the nature of cybercrime.
The APWG is the worldwide coalition unifying the global response to cybercrime across industry, government and law-enforcement sectors. APWG's membership of more than 2000 institutions worldwide is as global as its outlook, with its directors, managers and research fellows advising: national governments; global governance bodies like ICANN; hemispheric and global trade groups; and multilateral treaty organizations such as the European Commission, Council of Europe's Convention on Cybercrime, United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the Organization of American States.
