Counter-eCrime Operations Summit (APWG) In Prague Next Week

Garth Bruen

The sixth annual Counter-eCrime Operations Summit (CeCOS VI) will engage questions of operational challenges and the development of common resources for the first responders and forensic professionals who protect consumers and enterprises from the ecrime threat every day. This year's meeting will focus on the shifting nature of cybercrime and the attendant challenges of managing that dynamic threatscape. Within that framework, CeCOS VI Prague will review the development of response paradigms and resources for counter-cybercrime managers and forensic professionals in the private and public sectors. Presenters will also be reviewing case studies of national and regional economies under attack, narratives of successful trans-national forensic cooperation, considering models for cooperation against ecrime and examining resources for cybercrime response and forensic enterprises.

This is an important opportunity for stakeholders to meet, define common goals and to plan the harmonization of resources for the global counter-ecrime effort. If you are an information security professional, law enforcement officer, counter-ecrime technology developer, CISO/Security manager, (military or corporate) intelligence officer, policy analyst, technologist, legislator, legislative researcher, industrial standards author, corporate security manager, private investigator or academic/industrial researcher in ecrime you should attend this summit.

The program will be spread across a three-day conference event on April 25, 26 and 27 in Prague, Czech Republic at the Mövenpick Hotel Near the city center. The APWG believes under-appreciated operational issues are important enough to be the focus of a conference dedicated exclusively to them. They're often talked about as sidelights but rarely addressed directly as an organizational imperative for the entire counter-ecrime community. CeCOS VI makes those operational issue the central focus of the program for the benefit of all ecrime fighters.
