International Anti-Botnet Guide 2018

By USTelecom, ITI


From the report, “While the developers of this Guide strongly support the important role that governments play in convening a diverse ecosystem, the imposition of prescriptive, compliance-focused regulatory requirements will inhibit the security innovation that is key to staying ahead of today’s sophisticated threats. Moreover, earlier policy efforts were based on utopian solutions to these threats, premised on the notions that internet service providers (ISPs) can simply shut down all botnets, or that manufacturers can make all devices universally secure. Instead, dynamic, flexible solutions that are informed by voluntary consensus standards, driven by market demands, and implemented by stakeholders throughout the global digital economy, are the better answer to these evolving systemic challenges.”
