Meeting Focus

The fifth annual Counter-eCrime Operations Summit (CeCOS V) will engage questions of operational challenges and the development of common resources for the first responders and forensic professionals who protect consumers and enterprises from the ecrime threat every day. This year's meeting will focus on the development of response paradigms and resources for counter-ecrime managers and forensic professionals. Presenters will proffer case studies of national and regional economies under attack, narratives of successful trans-national forensic cooperation as well as models for cooperation and unified response against ecrime and data resources for forensic activities.

This is an important opportunity for stakeholders to meet, define common goals and to plan the harmonization of resources for the global counter-ecrime effort. If you are an information security professional, law enforcement officer, counter-ecrime technology developer, CISO/Security manager, (military or corporate) intelligence officer, policy analyst, technologist, legislator, legislative researcher, industrial standards author, corporate security manager, private investigator or academic/industrial researcher in ecrime you should attend this summit.

The program will be spread across a three-day conference event on April 27, 28 and 29 in Kulua Lumpur, Malaysia at the Crown Plaza Hotel. The APWG believes under-appreciated operational issues are important enough to be the focus of a conference dedicated exclusively to them. They're often talked about as sidelights but rarely addressed directly as an organizational imperative for the entire counter-ecrime community. CeCOS V makes those operational issue the central focus of the program for the benefit of all ecrime fighters.
  

Program Overview

Presentations at the opening of the program will be delivered by ecrime responders within the APWG, its Global Research Partners and law enforcement personnel who will discuss national and regional ecrime trends and individual case studies about resolving specific electronic crime cases. Presenters will come from the ranks of private industry, private security companies, public law enforcement agencies, government agencies and national Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT). True crime stories will be balanced with instruction about the skills the responders exercise as well as the data and tools employed to resolve phishing attacks.

APWG principals, research fellows and Global Research Partners will detail survey the eCrime landscape and present proposals for organizing global responses that will harmonize efforts of eCrime respondents and organize the work of securing the global network infrastructure. Furthermore, presenters will examine the development ecrime data exchange specifications and how they can be employed to optimize counter-ecrime applications. Presentations about industrial policy at CeCOS V will investigate industrial policies that complicate the work of exploited brandholders and responders - such as the segments of domain name system (DNS) registration process that is abused by phishers as part of their phishing campaigns.
  

Program Deliverables

Though instruction is always an APWG priority, the other defining goal is to identify common forensic needs - in terms the data, tools and communications protocols that are required to inform and facilitate time-sensitive 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 that are required by the larger counter-ecrime community.
