The Focus of the conference this year is twofold - (1) Evolving threat landscape, and (2) innovative system defense approaches. The topics are described in the paragraphs below. Evolving threat landscape: The Malware Criminal EcoSystem has become a vibrant sector of the dark economy in recent years. Innovation in this ecosystem is rampant at all levels - from the discovery of new vulnerabilities, to the introduction of new deployment mechanisms. This division of labor in the Malware Ecosystem has accelerated the deployment of new threats which often are deployed by multiple entities across platforms (often sloppily), but which certainly meet the business objectives. Current security approaches are often ineffective, since attackers quickly field test prototype attacks that dodge current defenses.
