I would like also to bring to your attention the publication of the slides of my presentation at CeCOS VI, the annual meeting organized by the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). In that so interesting event (sadly), there were only two people to represent Italy, Raoul Chiesa, the CyberDefcon principal, and me. Raoul gave a presentation titled "The soul of cybercriminals" based on his work on Hackers Profiling Project and I presented the current situation of cybercrime in Italy. CeCOS IV was a real success that gave the possibility to all the participants to establish new contacts with experts and professionals coming from many different countries and to have new information regarding the important trends in the cybercrime scenario.
