We are excited to announce that registration for the APWG's third annual Counter eCrime Operations Summit (CeCOS III) has opened and that the program committee has posted the preliminary agenda.
The CeCOS III, to be held in Barcelona on May 12-14, reflects the rapidly expanding APWG membership in Europe and presents an extraordinary opportunity to build strategic alliances between counter- eCrime operatives worldwide from both the private and public sectors. NOTE: CeCOS III Barcelona will be an open conference, with all sessions available to both member and non-member attendees.
APWG has always worked to build bridges between constituencies who engage the threat electronic crime poses against consumers and enterprises. With CeCOS III, the APWG will continue its mission of unifying key counter ecrime constituencies from global economies and key operatives (from financial services to telecoms to public sector law enforcement and private sector security companies) against the growing, international peril of electronic crime.
This year's meeting will focus on the development of e-crime response approaches, resources for counter-ecrime managers and forensic professionals and operational aspects of consumer protection. Presenters will proffer assessments of ecrime attack paradigms and technologies, case studies of national and regional economies under attack, narratives of successful trans-national forensic cooperation, paradigms for cooperation and unified response against ecrime and data resources for forensic activities.
We've already accepted a number of presentation proposals and a panel, to be posted soon, for the agenda. If you have conference presentation suggestion, please forward them to APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy, email@example.com.
