It's easy to say "why doesn't someone just do something about [whatever something is]?", but the security industry owes a huge debt to those people who beaver away in AMTSO, IEEE, APWG and so on, often in addition to their regular jobs. And, of course, to the employers who sponsor their participation. Without all that, we'd be in the position of an army with lots of commandos and no cooks or drivers, or a health service with lots of doctors and nurses but no pharmacists or administrators.

It might be a mouthful to say: "communications protocols required to harmonize cybercrime response across borders and between private sector financial and industrial sector responders and public sector policy professionals and law enforcement." But those protocols are urgently needed and the diverse range of participants required to codify them are more likely to come together at an event like this than more formal gatherings.
