Electronic spam

Cody C made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Currently waiting for a response from Department of Internal Affairs, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Cody C

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

What actions is DIA taking to reduce the propagation of electronic spam in NZ (if any)? For example, enforcement, regulation. How successful has this been?

What happens following a spam report to DIA? Please provide any relevant processes.

Please provide a summary of spam reports over the past 5 years, or less if the reporting has not existed that long, by month.

Has DIA considered introducing legislation that would mandate telcos implement protocols such as STIR/SHAKEN that would authenticate Caller IDs (similar to FCC in USA)? If not, why?

Yours faithfully,

Cody C
