Data Protection vs. Data Security

The 22nd Annual EICAR Conference to be held from November17th to 19th 2013 in Hannover, Germany. The conference brings together experts from industry, government, military, law enforcement, academia, research and end-users to examine and discuss new research and development in anti-virus, malware, e-security, e-forensics, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Management and legal aspects of the information technology. 

For over 21 years, EICAR supported independent and proactive scientific research activities in the field of computer anti-virus (malware) and all other aspects of IT security. Achievements of the past have always been based on an open, authentic process supported by some of the best researchers in the field for whom EICAR provided the independent organisational platform.

In cooperation with the Institute for Legal Informatics at the Leibniz University of Hanover the EICAR annual conference will bring together the fields of data protection and data security.
