250px-TrendMicroPerry.jpgWhat's going with the battle against viruses and spyware? Come and learn from someone on the front lines. David Perry is the Global Director of Education for Trend Micro. He represents Trend Micro at industry, government, customer and reseller events worldwide. David has long been considered a leading authority on computer virus prevention with more than 25 years in the technical support and education field.

At the meeting, you will have the opportunity to buy Trend Micro security software Internet Security Pro (Windows) and Smart Surfing for Mac at very special prices. Checks and cash only. No credit cards.

The battle lines have changed. Once the domain of bragging rights and college students, malicious and unwanted code (that stuff we call malware) has been professionalized and monetized. Crimeware, adware, rootkits, botnets and more fill the internet like bugs in a cheap Florida motel room. On the other side, computers are smaller, lighter, less expensive and more needed every passing hour. You may not bank online, but you can bet your bank does.

Join Trend Micro's David Perry in a master's class of the how, the why, and the what you can do about it.
