International law enforcement agencies set to join forces at VB2007 in Vienna.

International law enforcement agencies are set to join forces at the VB2007 anti-malware conference in Vienna next month to provide an insight into the work of the world's police forces in the fight against organized online crime.

The worldwide cooperation between international law enforcement agencies fighting cybercrime will be demonstrated at the VB2007 anti-malware conference in Vienna on Friday 21st September as members of the FBI, Australian Federal Police and the UK's CPNI take to the stage in a unique panel discussion.

Led by David Thomas, the FBI's Deputy Assistant Director for Science and Technology, panel members Stacy Arruda, Supervisory Special Agent, Cyber Crime Squad, FBI, Kevin Zuccato, Director, Australian High Tech Crime Centre, and Mark Oram, Senior Manager, Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, will discuss the current state of organized high-tech crime, the obstacles faced by law enforcement working across national jurisdictions, the working relationships between international task forces, the sharing of information and intelligence, future projects and more.

"VB is delighted to be hosting this panel discussion which offers delegates the unique opportunity to put their questions direct to those involved in enforcing the law," said Helen Martin, Editor of Virus Bulletin.

"Questions have been raised by many recently - including in a report by the Science and Technology Committee of the UK's House of Lords - over the level of cooperation achieved internationally between task forces in the fight against organized online crime," continued Martin. "This panel,coordinated by members of the FBI, allows delegates to hear about the current situation direct from those on the front line."

VB2007 is Virus Bulletin's 17th annual anti-malware conference. Over its 17-year history the VB conference has earned a reputation in the IT security industry as the premier event on anti-malware technologies and threats. The conference has broad appeal across the IT security arena, attracting delegates from across the globe including dedicated AV researchers as well as representatives from government and military organizations, legal, financial and educational institutions and high tech corporations worldwide.
