150x200(white) Based on the recent success of the My TechNet Security Tour, IT pros and developers in Canada care about security.  Computer security impacts our lives in so many ways from personal things like online banking, to protecting corporate assets.  In order to know what to protect and how to protect it you need to know what the possibilities are and that includes what the bad guys are working on.  Finding this information can be difficult sometimes.

SecTor brings the world's brightest (and darkest) minds together to identify, discuss, dissect and debate the latest digital threats facing corporations today. Unique to Canada, SecTor provides an unmatched opportunity for IT Professionals to collaborate with their peers and learn from their mentors.
