Vendor Sponsorship Opportunities
APWG is offering an opportunity to build relationships while marketing your company to a targeted audience of communications service, technology companies, security companies, regulatory and law enforcement officials and financial institutions during its Spring 2006 General Meeting in April.

Sponsorships are a personal, non-intrusive way of conveying your message. Additionally, your participation can help support activities vital to the overall success of the APWG and its research partners, which ultimately contributes to the success of the entire counter-phishing stakeholders' community.

The following benefits are available to Meeting Sponsors, once your sponsorship is confirmed:

Recognition in on-site signage displayed during the meal or break
Distribution of one giveaway such as a literature pack

There are a number of meal or break sponsorship opportunities available for APWG members who want to use the meetings as an opportunity to communicate their brand and message to members of the APWG and presenters, each either a critical decision maker or a thought leader in his or her own right.

About the Anti-Phishing Working Group
The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) is focused on giving industry stakeholders a confidential forum to discuss phishing issues, define the scope of the phishing problem in terms of hard and soft costs, and share information and best practices for eliminating the problem. Where appropriate, the APWG will also look to share this information with law enforcement. Membership is open to qualified financial institutions, e-commerce companies, the law enforcement community, and industry. Because phishing attacks and email fraud are sensitive subjects for many organizations that do business online, the APWG has a policy of maintaining the confidentiality of member organizations.

The Web site of the Anti-Phishing Working Group is www.antiphishing.org. It serves as a public and industry resource for information about the problem of phishing and email fraud, including identification and promotion of pragmatic technical solutions that can provide immediate protection and benefits against phishing attacks.

The APWG was founded by Tumbleweed Communications and a number of member banks, financial services institutions, and e-commerce providers. It held its first meeting in November 2003 in San Francisco. The APWG, an organization of more than 2300 members and more than 1500 member companies, police and government agencies worldwide was officially established as an independent organization in June 2004, controlled by its executives and board of directors and an advisory steering committee.
