eCrime Researchers Sync-Up 2013

eCrime Researchers Sync-Up 2013



The third annual APWG eCrime Sync-Up, organised by APWG in conjunction with University College Dublin's Centre for Cybercrime Investigation, is a two-day exchange of presentations and discussions of eCrime research in progress that, as importantly, provides a venue for networking of researchers within the eCrime research disciplines with law enforcement officials and industrial responders who investigate and manage cybercrime every day.

APWG Sync-Up puts front-line industrial intervenors and cybercrime law enforcement officials together with academic and industrial researchers, engendering a vital cross-sector dialog that helps responders from industry and public-sector law enforcement build their networks and acquire new skills - all the while informing the research of cybercrime researchers who are delineating this still nascent discipline.

For this year's conference, in Dublin March 7 and 8, ICANN is providing training specifically for investigation of abuses of the DNS, increasingly an important source of forensic data that provides key information to cybercrime investigations.

The eCrime Sync-Up was established as an extension of the annual APWG eCrime Research Summit held every year in the fall in the United States, an event that has become a vital nexus for the development of eCrime research and its pioneering investigators since it was founded in 2006.

Instead of a formal conference presenting peer-reviewed papers and posters, the program is an opportunity for the principal investigators within the discipline from academia, industry and government to discuss their research, find axes of common interest and establish cross-sector collaborations.
