ENOG is the regional forum in which Internet experts concerned with the core operational issues of the Internet can share knowledge and expertise on issues unique to the Russian Federation, CIS and Eastern Europe. The goal of ENOG 3, which took place on May 22-23, was to enable operators from this region to share experiences and discuss common interests and ideas for improving local and global Internet communication.
During his presentation at ENOG 3, Mr. Bachollet discussed IFFOR and its policy development role in helping TLDs establish a global standard in combating child sexual abuse images, providing effective parental control, ensuring accurate domain registration information, and protecting the privacy, security, and consumer rights of all Internet users.

He served as CEO of BBS Consulting for 7 years, and is now IT Consultant with Items International.
