About the Anti-Phishing Working Group

The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) is focused on giving industry stakeholders a confidential forum to discuss phishing issues, define the scope of the phishing problem in terms of hard and soft costs, and share information and best practices for eliminating the problem. Where appropriate, the APWG will also look to share this information with law enforcement. Membership is open to qualified financial institutions, e-commerce companies, the law enforcement community, and industry. Because phishing attacks and email fraud are sensitive subjects for many organizations that do business online, the APWG has a policy of maintaining the confidentiality of member organizations.

The Web site of the Anti-Phishing Working Group is It serves as a public and industry resource for information about the problem of phishing and email fraud, including identification and promotion of pragmatic technical solutions that can provide immediate protection and benefits against phishing attacks.

The APWG was founded by Tumbleweed Communications and a number of member banks, financial services institutions, and e-commerce providers. It held its first meeting in November 2003 in San Francisco. The APWG, an organization of nearly 1300 members and 800 member companies, police and government agencies worldwide was officially established as an independent organization in June, 2004, controlled by its executives and board of directors and an advisory steering committee.
