The AVAR conference 2012 in Hangzhou, China

IT security specialists discuss and shape their industry’s future

This week, the AVAR Conference is taking place in Hangzhou, China. G Data is attending the conference to participate in many of the organized events. Several pre-meetings, like the AVPD (Anti-Virus Product Developer) and the WildList meeting, already took place. All discussions and efforts will finally result in improvements for future products, for security tests and overall better security for the users.)

 

This year’s AVAR Conference is covering a lot of trending topics ranging from mobile malware to botnets. Seji Murakami, Chairman of AVAR, traditionally opened the conference with a warm welcome speech. This year, the keynote speeches were focused on Android security product testing (AV-Test), preventive actions concerning malware in China (CERT China) and malware trends (Microsoft).

IT security specialists now gathered for the 15th edition of the conference and it always tried to highlight the specific problems related to Asian malware. One of the main topics over here is “working all together against cybercrime” which is, unfortunately, not always an easy thing to do.

If you are interested in the agenda and information about the other topics discussed, you can find a lot of information on the AVAR Conference 2012 website. Furthermore, more info about the next conference’s venue and future topics will also follow on the official AVAR homepage.
