***ABOUT SYSCAN’06***
The Symposium on Security for Asia Network aims to be a very different security conference from the rest of the security conferences that the information security community in Asia has come to be so familiar and frustrated with.

It is the aspiration of SyScan’06 to congregate, in Singapore, the best security experts in their various fields, to share their research, discovery and experience with all security enthusiasts in Asia.

The speakers that will be at SyScan’06 are among the best, and brightest.
These experienced security professionals at the vanguard of leading information security technology have assembled unique new material that they will present at this conference to help you maintain your technological leadership and stay abreast of the latest developments in this rapidly moving technological field.

This two-day symposium will be held in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, allowing all participants to enjoy themselves whilst expanding their knowledge on information security.

SyScan’06 will be held in Singapore on 20th and 21st of July, 2006 over at the Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel.
