Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, will be both attending and sponsoring the Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers (AVAR) 2002 international conference in Seoul. Industry veteran Paul Ducklin will be raising awareness of the most common virus threats and providing practical advice on how to prevent infection during his speech at the conference. AVAR 2002 takes place at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Seoul on the 21st and 22nd November.
Speakers at the conference have been carefully selected from applicants from sixteen nations to present information about the latest developments in anti-virus technology and discuss the issues affecting worldwide information security. Delegates include security professionals and anti-virus researchers amongst other interest groups.
“Conferences like AVAR provide those with an interest in anti-virus with a valuable opportunity to discuss current and future virus trends and how to counteract them,” said Paul Ducklin, head of global support and Asia-Pacific virus laboratory at Sophos. “Sharing our experiences and the information we have gathered can only strengthen our defenses against malicious code and hopefully minimise the damage it causes.”
AVAR (Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers) was established to prevent the spread and damage caused by computer viruses in the region, and to fight against the threats which affect users. The members of AVAR are committed to improving their knowledge and skills through active involvement in regional and international anti-virus activities.
