CenturyLink Inc. President and CEO Glen Post attended a White House cybersecurity event this Wednesday to discuss best practices to limit cyber attacks, the company announced Wednesday.
A major discussion point of the event included botnets, or infected networks of personal computers that can be accessed by outside users.
Post said the company works with government and industry to defend against malicious software attacks including spam, financial crimes and personal information theft.
He also highlighted the company’s botnet remediation program, which was established around six years ago.
The company said in the release that it supports an industry group’s recommendations to share resources for fighting botnets.
