Data Sources for the Abuse Desk

Tobias Knecht,

Founder and CEO, Abusix

As an internet service provider (ISP) or hosting provider, you need to get your hands on as much quality network abuse data as possible. This will help get you to gain a complete view of how well your network is functioning.

There are many different sources that are available. Some are free, and some are paid services–and a lot of them also cover many different areas and types of network abuse. This list will be updated as new sources become available or discovered.
