McCarthy takes bigger role in IFFOR and group offers policy making services.
Former ICANN General Manager of Public Participation Kieren McCarthy will become Executive Director of IFFOR this April.
McCarthy has been IFFOR’s manager of public participation since 2011. He will replace outgoing executive director Joan Irvine.
IFFOR, which stands for International Foundation for Online Responsibility, was set up as part of the .xxx domain name launch. IFFOR gets $10 from every .xxx domain registration in order to initiate “a series of policies for responsible business practices and conduct within the .XXX online adult-entertainment community.”
The group is also going to start offering policy making services to new top level domain name applicants:
Our Policy Engine service first provides you with an assessment of policy requirements for your registry. From there, IFFOR offers a full policy development and/or a policy review service if you choose to develop your own policies and want independent expert review. We also offer professional child protection and compliance consulting, plus auditing and Ombuds services.
