The IEEE Digital Presence Database (DPDB) is a repository of ownership and technical information about IEEE web properties and social media sites.

The purpose of collecting this information is to aid in preventing inappropriate usage, protecting IEEE brand(s) from infringement, reputation management, and to avoid IEEE-related websites becoming inaccessible due to loss of domain ownership or hacking. Additionally, it will help in the future with sharing analytics data, technical tips, scripts, and common code.

There have been occasions where data from the database has allowed us to retrieve domain names that were in danger of being “hijacked” by entities outside of IEEE, which could have led to lawsuits and expensive re-purchase. In other cases, we’ve used contact information to inform site owners that a section of their site has been hacked or otherwise compromised.

If you are receiving this bulletin, there’s a good chance that you are responsible for the content, operation, and/or maintenance of one or more IEEE websites and/or social media sites, and the database already contains information about you and your site. We’d like to request that you provide us with information on these properties to add to or update the DPDB.

Has the management of your site changed? Do you have a new CMS or analytics tool? We’d like to know!

Add or update your website information via this form: http://goo.gl/forms/TAwYs1nPns.

Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.
