Gibson is CEO of Gibson Research Corporation, a security software firm, and an outspoken proponent of giving consumers greater control over their computers.
Following the same format as last year's successful public meetings, the June workshop provides an opportunity for the public to meet with the members of the ASC, discuss the issues affecting the anti-spyware industry and give feedback to the ASC on its work and public documents.
