Dear Network Operators, Where Are Your MANRS?!

Megan Kruse
By Megan KruseDirector, Partner Engagement and Communications

As we just published over on the MANRS blog, we are approaching the second anniversary of launching the MANRS initiative in which network operators from around the globe work together to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system. We have just published a press release about MANRS and are working to increase MANRS’ visibility in wider circles.

We have now grown to over 40 network operators. From the press release: “As networks have come under increased stress from corporations, governments and other actors, not all benign, the visibility of the Internet’s routing infrastructure as a critical component has become as high as that of the Domain Name System (DNS) or other core infrastructure,” said Olaf Kolkman, Chief Internet Technology Officer (CITO) at the Internet Society. “By promoting routing security and resilience, MANRS gives operators a way to demonstrate their commitment to networking excellence, helping to restore trust in the Internet to anxious peers, businesses, customers and individuals.”

We are embarking upon this public relations outreach to inform more network operators about the initiative, grow its membership, and work toward improving routing security for everyone on the Internet.

Read the full release here, and stay tuned for a coverage recap in a few days! You can also follow along on the MANRS Twitter account or MANRS blog for coverage as it comes in.
