Meeting Details

The 2007 Counter-eCrime Operations Summit will engage questions of operational challenges and the development of common resources for operations personal, first responders and the forensic artisans who confront the ecrime threat every day as part of their workaday brief.

It presents an action-focused agenda, instructing the plenary through informative case studies and interrogating the larger stakeholding
community in dialog about development of shared resources like common data formats for ecrime reporting, alerting systems and the federation of phishing attack databases now in development at the APWG and its global research partners.

The draft agenda, still in development by the CeCOS program committee and the APWG CeCOS program partners, is as follows:

Program Deliverables
Though instruction is always an APWG priority, the other defining goal of the Counter-eCrime Operations Summit is to scope common resource needs in terms the data, tools and communications protocols that are required to inform and facilitate time-sensitive, agent-specific high-precision communications between counter-ecrime stakeholders. APWG has surveyed a lot of proposals and all have merit but required some harmonization of effort in order to make them maximally useful. APWG hopes that at the end of the program, the ensuing dialog will produce defined projects to organize data, tools and communications protocols (or their federation and harmonization) that are needed by the larger counter-ecrime community.
Call for Presentations
APWG members, research partner and correspondents are invited and encouraged to submit their proposals for presentations and panel discussions to APWG Program Committee at
