The e-Crime Congress 2006 will seek to challenge conventional attitudes on e-Crime and examine how business, government and law enforcement can continue to work together in order to tackle a threat that undermines public confidence in the Internet as a viable and secure commercial medium for the future.

Agenda and Speakers

New! We will be introducing a live voting system for Q &A. This has been trialled at another AKJ event and feedback has been really positive so we will be expanding its use in the 2006 e-Crime Congress. The voting system will allow delegates to instantaneously provide feedback and to answer questions thrown open to the floor. Interaction can be anonymous and the results of any sessions can be posted in real time. This is a great tool for understanding current thinking from the people who are at the coalface!

New! The format of the event over the two days will be a mix of plenary sessions &education seminars. The seminars will give delegates the opportunity to hear how IT security issues &concerns have been successfully dealt with using technology or services. Examples from corporate organisations will detail specific problems they have faced and how a structured approach to solving them has led to an effective outcome solution. There will be four seminars each day that delegates can choose to attend.
