ISPCON FALL 2003 CONFERENCE & EXPO FEATURES COMPREHENSIVE ANTI-SPAM PROGRAMGOLDEN, CO - September 10, 2003 (INB) -- Internet service providers are forging ahead in the ongoing battle to control ever-expanding costs of unsolicited commercial e-mail. A comprehensive program, Spam: Crisis Management, spanning several days of ISPCON Fall 2003 Conference & Expo - being held October 20-22 at the Santa Clara Westin & Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - has been programmed exclusively to provide Internet Service Providers with the most current strategies, peer-based knowledge and tools to manage spam more aggressively than ever before.
Part of the largest conference of its kind, which runs across four days and six individual tracks of intensive education, the Spam: Crisis Management conference track for ISPs is designed to deliver real answers to tough problems and provide realistic deployable solutions. Spam issues will be covered in the most comprehensive format possible because ISPs need to take a multi-pronged approach to neutralize spammers and reduce bandwidth exhausted by spam. Addressing the flood of spam at both the client (user) level and ISP gateways where spam must first pass will set the tone for the rest of the conference program.
Service Providers will gain an understanding of the many legal and regulatory developments surrounding spam and hear from ISPs who are suing spammers. A panel of leading analysts covering the market will provide a view into the future of the spam epidemic and outline key trends to help ISPs.
Wrapping up the week will be a workshop titled The Perfect Storm, hosted by spam and security experts Stephen and Chey Cobb that will focus on the most malicious aspects of spam. Attendees will learn techniques for minimizing false positives, strategies for deflecting malware attacks, tricks for turning customers into supporters of ISP efforts and tips on limiting security incidents.
The conference will feature over 30 leading experts directly involved in the war on spam. Current participants include: Alex Goldman, Associate Editor, ISP-Planet.com; Bill Glazier, VP of Marketing, Postini; Karl Jacob, CEO, Cloudmark; Felix Lin, CEO and Co-founder, Qurb; Philip Raymond, CEO, Vanquish; Brian Huseman, Attorney, Federal Trade Commission; Joanne McNabb, Officer, California Office of Privacy Protection; Jon Praed, Partner, Internet Law Group; Dave Baker, VP, Law and Public Policy, Earthlink; Sara Radicati, President and CEO, The Radicati Group; Joe Laszlo, Senior Analyst, Jupiter Research; Paul Judge, Chief Technology Officer, CipherTrust; Meng Wong, CTO, IC Group; Scott Banister, Co-Founder & CTO, IronPort; Trevor Hughes, Executive Director, NAI's E-mail Service Provider Coalition; Miles Libbey, Anti-spam Specialist, Yahoo!; Vincent J.
