indicate the need for fast action," said Dr. Howard Michel, IEEE (News - Alert) MGA VP
of all 10 IEEE worldwide regions. "WWSMC started in IEEE Region 1
(Northeast), has debuted in Region 8 (Denmark), and is now covering
Region 10 (Asia) with the WWSMC coming to India. With WWSMC now reaching
all corners of the globe, we can institute rapid change, improving our
ability to combat the cyber criminals of today."
