AVAR is a non-profit organization whose primary objective is to prevent the spread of and the damage caused by malicious code. AVAR now comprises of members from 17 territories, within the Asia Pacific region and around the world. We are facing an ever-changing and growing threat from malware, but our capability to protect and respond to the danger is also growing. I believe that the international and inter-organisational exchange and cooperation at the AVAR conferences through the years have made a significant contribution to those defences. I am sure that our 19th conference will continue that tradition.
AVAR is not just a conference for virus researchers, It is also particularly relevant to the business and technical needs of corporate IT professionals, students, educators, law enforcement professionals, legislators and all those whose objectives are to ensure safe and secure computing as well as the security of the internet. I hope that you can join us and benefit from this conference.
I hope that all speakers and delegates have a meaningful and wonderful time at the conference. In addition, I wish that they will enjoy their stay in the historic and fast-changing city of Kuala Lumpur
