APWG eCrime 2019 Symposium Proposes Cybercrime Suppression Via Globalized Response Infrastructure Development and Reinforcement

Pittsburgh symposium features: globalized response strategies; hardening of shared infrastructure; examination of user resilience / susceptibility to cybercrime; and cryptocurrency aspects of emerging cybercrimes
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#APWG–The research accepted by the 2019 APWG eCrime symposium focuses on hardening of response and infrastructure protection against cybercrime, examining propagation and attack strategies of cybercrime gangs and mechanisms to programmatically detect and measure different kinds of cybercrime-related attacks.

This, the 14th annual Symposium on Electronic Crime (APWG eCrime), will be held on November 13th – 15th at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA: https://apwg.org/ecrime2019/

APWG Director and eCrime conference General Chair Dr. Brad Wardman said, “The papers we received this year show that the research community has evolved to engage cybercrime as something more than simply a technical problem (i.e. need for taxonomies, better reporting, and deeper understanding of underlying weaknesses and globalized mechanisms to detect and measure cybercrime attacks).

“This year, the submissions clearly tell us we are embracing approaches analogous to public-health models of intervention,” Dr. Wardman said.

A number of papers propose to establish metrics and infrastructure for providing programmatic interventions against the most common cybercrimes, including submissions on: browser and security products’ blocklist monitoring; industry conventions for reporting common cybercrime events; identifying and isolating the most persistent malicious hosting venues; and automated classification of domains employed in phishing attacks.

In addition, research center investigators and industrial responders offer a number of papers and presentations on: behavioral aspects of cybercrime; advances in development of law enforcement case formation and processing infrastructure; abuse of payment card and gift card infrastructure; and the role of cryptocurrency in the development of new forms of cybercrime.

Among the papers and presentations that will be reviewed with the delegates at APWG eCrime 2019 in Pittsburgh on November 13-15 are:

About the APWG Symposium on Electronic Crime Research

The Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (APWG eCrime), founded in 2006 as the eCrime Researchers Summit, is an annual peer-reviewed conference featuring a comprehensive venue to present basic and applied research into electronic crime and engaging every aspect of its evolution – as well as technologies and techniques for eCrime detection, related forensics and prevention. Since then, what had been an initially technology focused conference has incrementally expanded its focus to cover behavioral, social, economic, and legal / policy dimensions as well as technical aspects of cybercrime, following the interests of our correspondent investigators, the symposium’s managers as well as the guidance of APWG’s own directors and steering committee members. Scores of papers exploring these dimensions of cybercrime at APWG eCrime have been published by the IEEE as well as by Taylor & Francis and the Association of Computing Machinery (in the very earliest years of this conference). With its multi-disciplinary approach, APWG eCrime every year brings together the most heterogeneous community of counter-eCrime researchers and industrial stakeholders to confer over the latest research, and to foster collaborations between the leading investigators in this still nascent field of cybercrime studies.
