Abuse Desk

An abuse desk is a team at a network provider or SaaS solution responsible for preventing fraud and abuser emanating from their network by enforcing their terms of service and acceptable use policies. Abuse desks usually comprise individuals from various backgrounds, including security, legal, customer service, network, email, and system administrators.

Abuse is reported to the abuse desk using the [email protected] role account for your domain(s) or via the abuse contacts defined in network ranges in RIR WHOIS records. Email spam and phishing from your network may be reported to you by signing up to Feedback Loops.
