Like the rest of New Zealand, we're online working away from the office.
With more people online so increases the likelihood of more reporting of enquiries related to .nz.
Our contact centre remains open and we continue to liaise closely with our online safety partners to triage reports of .nz domain names associated with online safety problems.
For the time being, we haven't seen an influx of reports of suspicious looking .nz domain names.
Regardless of the lockdown, we're getting ready for the Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Names and Pacific Internet Governance Forum launching 6-9 September. Two years ago, we bid for New Zealand to support Fiji to bring the event to the Pacific. It’s great to see this multi stakeholder event taking shape and nearly ready for launch.
While it’s disappointing not to be meeting in person, with the support of ConferenceNZ and various global partners we've helped to produce an amazing online and virtual experience for the region.
There are now more than 7 hub countries and over 450 delegates. If you are interested in participating please register at APTLD80’s site. For once, an international conference of this significance is in a New Zealand friendly time zone!
Last month we published our 3rd annual transparency report, more about that below.
In the coming month we'll be sending out information about our annual #ShopSafeNZ campaign which will be launching late October. Now in its third year, this year we have a brand new website to launch and the results of our consumer research into fake webshops. There will also be more ways for our supporters to keep .nz safe for everyone.
If you’d like to become a supporter of #ShopSafeNZ email us and we will make sure to include you in our outreach efforts.
