MALCON is a premier international technology security conference focusing exclusively on proactive malware research and analysis. MalCon is a part of Information Sharing and Analysis Center, in support with the Government of India.
Executed in India by the UK based multinational media company UBM Plc that also owns the infamous Black Hat briefings, MalCon aims in bringing together Malware and Information Security Researchers from across the globe to share key research insights into building and containment of the next generation malwares. Unlike most hacker conventions, MALCON is opposed to the much debated ‘zero day’ and ‘full disclosure’. The first MalCon conference took place in December 2010 at Mumbai and Pune, India.
Many of the attendees at MALCON include security professionals, Government employees, lawyers, researchers, journalists and hackers with interest in malwares and its global impact on economy. The event promotes “proactive” research in malware coding and openly invites malcoders to come forward and demonstrate their creation.
