A reflection on the NSRC - MANRS Partnership

In December 2020, NSRC and MANRS got into a partnership to bring more routing security education and hands-on learning to the MANRS Community.

RENU acknowledges that the partnership is good for all networks, especially the ones that NSRC has supported over the years.

We're proud to partner with NSRC to bring more #routingsecurity education and hands-on learning to the #MANRS community. Learn more: https://www.manrs.org/2020/12/partnering-with-nsrc-on-manrs-routing-security-training/
