CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Global cybercrime-fighting association APWG is hosting its eCrime 2013 members meeting and research conference in San Francisco next month to launch its second decade of leading the global engagement with cybercrime, assembling commercial leaders from multinational technology and financial services companies, government and law enforcement agencies and industrial and academic researchers from around the world to update the global agenda for the long-term containment of the cybercrime scourge.
eCrime 2013 combines: the APWG's general members meeting for confidential member discussion; the peer-reviewed eCrime Researchers Summit for research papers; and the ICANN Security, Stability, and Resiliency Update for expert examination of managing the special security risks that attend the management of the DNS. The program's sessions cover every aspect of the dynamic cybercrime spectrum, from the latest crimeware technologies being thrown against consumer devices to data exchange protocols for cooperative response to cybercrime threats.
APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy said, "Trading societies traditionally have cooperated to manage persistent threats such as weather, maritime piracy and communicable diseases. As the APWG enters its second decade, it is clear that cybercrime will join those persistent threats to which industry will have to provide vehicles for management of common and predictable risks. APWG's role has never been clearer in establishing protocols of cybercrime event data exchange, propagating informed public awareness and directing public and industrial policies to globalize the response to cybercrime."
