The APWG is pleased to present eCrime 2011, a combined event that includes the 2011 Fall General Meeting and eCrime Researchers Summit. No eCrime or malware researcher or counter-eCrime developer or responder will want to miss this year's event. Please join us at this opportunity to bring yourself up-to-date on phishing and eCrime's evolution across the globe. Count on three full days of cutting presentations on eCrime and eCrime response, expert discussions and in-depth round-tables with updates on APWG projects in development for the counter eCrime community. As well, we will look into the future of the APWG's development and for guidance on managing it from our eclectic member base.

This eCrime Congress will include a one-day, members-only meeting on November 7 and two full days of open sessions thereafter of programming that will be open to both members and non-members. APWG will examine crimeware's evolution, behavioral vulnerabilities and human factors that contribute to eCrime's success, the roles of Registrars, Registries and DNS in managing phishing attacks, public health approaches to managing the eCrime scourge, as well as breaking news on counter-eCrime efforts and resources.

APWG Members and Non-Members Please Note: The sessions at the Fall General Meeting on November 7 are open to APWG Members Only. APWG organizers will vet all registrants that sign up for the conference. Interlopers will not be accommodated. The subsequent eCrime Researchers Summit sessions on November 8 and 9 is a public event open to all. If you haven't already, check membership rules and benefits at: http://www.apwg.org/membership.html Members at the individual level and above are eligible to attend the General Members' meetings.

Vendor Sponsorship Opportunities

APWG is offering an opportunity to build relationships while marketing your company to a targeted audience of security, messaging and financial professionals. 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 or chotchkee

There are a number of meal, break and entertainment sponsorship opportunities available for APWG members who want to use this 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.

Please contact Deputy-Secretary Foy Shiver for details via email at fshiver [at] apwg.org.
