It was a great event as it brought together close to 30 journalists from 12 countries in the region as well as guest presenters, such as Cesar Longa from IDC, Ruben Aquino from CERT Mexico, Independent Expert Jorge Mieres and the Cybersecurity Advisor of Ecuador Juan Andres Guerrero.
Perhaps one of the most interesting presentations was the one on APT attacks with Latin American targets. This presentation was very relevant to the journalists because in the past we had only seen collateral effects of such attacks in the region as it was in case with Duqu in Chile and Red October in Brazil. However, the situation has now changed. For example, we have seen there are some local APT players carrying out targeted attacks in Latin America with regional targets.
There was another good thing Ė in Kaspersky Lab we know how to work hard but we also know how to have a good time! You may appreciate what I mean with the picture below.
