The Anti-Spyware Coalition has announced the final agenda for the public workshop to be held on February 9, 2006 in Washington, DC. I’m really excited about this workshop, especially since I’m on a panel. The speakers include important folks like Deborah Majoras Platt, the Chairman of the FTC, Susannah Fox of the Pew Internet Commission, Ed Skoudis from SANS Institute, Ed Felton of Princeton and Freedom to Tinker fame, Justin Brookman of the New York Attorney General’s office, Richard Stiennon of Webroot, Eric Davis of Google, Eric Goldman of Marquette University and, of course, Ari Schwartz of the CDT (Center for Democracy & Technology. Some of my good friends, also important people in the world of spyware and anti-spyware, are in the line up as well including Chris Boyd, aka Paperghost of VitalSecurity and Facetime, Eric Howes of SpywareWarrior and now the newly appointed Director of Malware Reseach at Sunbelt Software, Dave Methvin of PCPitStop and noted spyware/adware expert Ben Edelman. See the entire agenda and speakers here.
There are lots of other well known in the industry names on the agenda as well, and some vital topics like Tracking Spyware Across Borders, Spyware’s Impact on Businesses and Individuals, Corporate Policies for Spyware Control, and Fighting Spyware through Industry Self-Regulation.
The ASC workshop promises to be a most educational and enlightening event. There's still time to register here.
