Monday, July 27th, 2009 - The 2009 eCrime Symposium
In an innovative new event, leading ecrime security experts are gathering together to discuss the impact of emerging online threats for businesses operating on the web.

The 2009 eCrime Symposium will raise questions on how governments and jurisdictions, locally and globally, can work with organisations and the industry to combat ecrime.

Taking place in Sydney on Tuesday 9th August, 2009, the eCrime Symposium boasts a phenomenal speaker lineup, including the U.S. Secret Service’s Jeffrey Shelton, Commonwealth Bank’s Chief Security Officer John Geurts, Detective Superintendent Brian Hay from Queensland Police and David Batch, former Director of Safety at Myspace Australia, as well as a host of other leading experts in the field.

Internationally, there is growing awareness of the importance of recognising cyber security. U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledged this in the recently released Cyberspace Policy Review, which calls for the development of a "national dialogue" on cyber security, as well as increased public awareness of the threats and risks of ecrime.

And that’s exactly what the 2009 eCrime Symposium is aiming to encourage. Our security experts will help attendees to gain an understanding of current threats, what is at risk, and ways to protect Australian businesses, in addition to exploring the tough issues of corporate responsibility and crisis management. Speakers will discuss the cost benefits of online crime reduction, what the future of ecrime will be, and what new technologies are being developed to fight ecrime.

Sponsored by eBay, Sophos and FMT, this event will hopefully encourage future collaboration and discussion about ecrime.

Discussion will centre around a range of fascinating ecrime topics, from protecting your ‘cyberself’ in the world of social media networks, to what ecrime means for large organisations like the Commonwealth Bank, and how governments and jurisdictions, locally and globally, can work with organisations and industry to collaborate against ecrime.

The 2009 eCrime Symposium is made possible by the Internet Safety Institute, Slattery IT and conference advisors Nigel Phair and Alastair MacGibbon.
