Regional security conference coming to NZ

A major regional security conference will visit these shores for the first time in December.

The ninth annual conference of the Association of Anti-Virus Asia Researchers (AVAR) will be held at Auckland’s Skycity convention centre on December 4 and 5.

The event is being hosted by local distributor Chillisoft on behalf of Eset Nod 32, which is one of the conference’s principal sponsors.

Chillisoft is the sole local distributor of the Eset Nod 32 antivirus and antipsyware software.

The company’s managing director Geoff Cossey and spokesperson for the event says this year’s conference is expected to attract over 300 delegates from AVAR member organisations throughout Asia Pacific.

He adds the event is a great opportunity for local security practitioners to display their work to an international audience.

“We are looking for New Zealand companies working in the anti-malware space to present at the event,” he says.

The conference is open to the entire IT industry, not just AVAR members, and should appeal to the IT security interests of integrators, large corporates, government departments and security agencies, and the education sector, says Cossey.

“We will be working hard to attract attendees from all these areas,” he says.

The conference theme and key note speakers will be announced next month, when presentation papers will also be called, says Cossey.

AVAR is a not-for-profit organisation based in Japan that aims to prevent the spread and damage caused by malicious software. Its members include security experts, governmental agencies and corporations in nine Asia Pacific regions and the US and Europe.

The organisation’s last conference was held in Beijing, China.
