Back to basics: fighting the evolving criminal
“The 20th International Conference 2017 Anti-virus Asia Researchers (AVAR 2017) will be held on December 6-8, 2017 in Beijing, China. The main theme of the conference is “Back to basics: fighting the evolving criminal”
Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their approaches; they’ve moved from ransomware attacks to IoT botnet attacks, from bank heists to cyber espionage APT, and from malvertising attacks to deceptive social engineering attacks. AVs have responded with machine learning, eradication, disruption, orchestrated defenses, sharing, and criminal engagement.
We want this year’s conference to explore how the AV industry leverages its strengths, orchestrates its expertise, and embraces innovative approaches to continuously fight and win against evolving threats. We are calling for papers that discuss how we are (or should be) evolving our tools, techniques, and practices to win, to better safeguard PCs, mobile devices, servers, endpoints, and network . We are not looking for sales pitches, but papers that inform, engage, or inspire our industry in its fight against evolving cybercrime!
