<p><b>AUUG announces the speakers and program for the AUUG Security
Symposium
2004 to be held on 20 February 2004 in Canberra.</b></p>
<p>
SYDNEY, Australia -- 22 January, 2004 -- AUUG, the organisation for
UNIX and Open Source professionals, today announced the speakers and
program
for the third annual AUUG Security Symposium. The symposium provides a
forum for discussion of security technologies, techniques and
management.
Participants will come from government agencies, the academic sector,
and
local, national and international organizations.</p>
<p>The symposium is unashamedly for the practitioner in the field who
wants
to gain and share knowledge about how to secure their systems. It aims
to fill a gap in the Australian conference scene between the high cost
commercial conferences where attendees hear mainly marketing pitches
and
the academic based research conferences.</p>
<p>With the growing importance of Open Source, Open Standards and
Interoperability
to both Government and industry, the symposium is a valuable resource
and
meeting place for users, developers and vendors wanting to minimise
security
risks.</p>
