  • Malware Analysis
  • Mobile Security
  • Nation State Threats(APT)
  • Network Security
  • Risk Management
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Secure Development

Although the content of COUNTERMEASURE 2017 will be applicable to audiences from all sectors, speakers chosen will have particular relevance in addressing the issues faced by Canadian Government.
