Edgar Perez, Author of Knightmare on Wall Street, to Lead The Speed Traders Workshop 2015 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Speed Traders Workshop 2015 Kuala Lumpur, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools” (http://thespeedtradersworkshop.com), is the first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of high-frequency trading with Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street (http://knightmareonwallstreet.com), and will open the door to the secretive world of computerized low-latency trading, the most controversial form of investing today; in the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, speed traders almost never talk to the press and try to disclose as little as possible about how they operate.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2015 Kuala Lumpur covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The “flash crash”, the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital’s trading malfunction and NASDAQ’s Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.

US-China Cooperation on Cybersecurity to be Analyzed by The Speed Traders’ Edgar Perez at Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2015

According to research firm Novetta Solutions, Axiom, a part of the Chinese Intelligence Apparatus, is main responsible for directing highly sophisticated cyber espionage operations against numerous Fortune 500 companies, journalists, environmental and pro-democracy groups, software companies, academic institutions, and government agencies worldwide for at least six years. Novetta’s coordinated effort performed the first ever-private sponsored interdiction against a sophisticated state sponsored advanced threat group. Their efforts detected and cleaned 43,000 separate installations of Axiom tools, including 180 of their top tier implants.

The organization responsible for directing Axiom, according to NewsFactor, appears targeting specific industries, including electronics and integrated circuit manufacturers, networking equipment manufacturers, Internet-based services companies, software vendors (particularly in the Asia-Pacific area), law firms with an international or M&A footprint, telecom companies, manufacturing conglomerates, venture capital firms, energy companies, meteorological services companies, cloud computing providers and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Yet, a spokesperson for the Chinese embassy dismissed the report’s claims as “fictitious.”

Amidst mounting distrust, Edgar Perez (http://mredgarperez.com), author of Knightmare on Wall Street, will discuss the state of the cybersecurity dialogue between the United States and China at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com).

About Cyber Security World Conference 2015

Cyber security is never again a term to ignore for individuals or corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country’s global economic prominence and worldwide security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Unfortunately, the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing exorbitantly high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America’s largest commercial bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cyber attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. The bank said the unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.

Renowned information security experts and innovative service providers will present at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 their latest thinking to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises and governmental agencies. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2015 will discuss include:

  • Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
  • Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States
  • How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
  • Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
  • Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
  • Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs

Cyber Security World Conference 2015 is produced by Golden Networking, the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to information@goldennetworking.com.
