Digital Forensics Cyber Crime Investigation Summit
Ever since the dawn of the internet, it was only a matter of time before hackers and cyber criminals would launch cyber attacks with relative anonymity and disrupt operations of large and small organizations alike. Due to the rapid evolution of technology, there has been a massive increase in the complexity of communication and networking infrastructure thereby making investigation of cyber crimes difficult and time consuming. At times, footprints of illegal activities are often buried in large volumes of data that needs to be sifted through in order to collect evidence of cyber crimes. A recent study stated that the Middle East IT sector is on track to register a year-on-year growth of 8 per cent against a backdrop of cyber crime which is costing the region up to $1 billion. Given these circumstances, prudent organizations have adopted robust approaches to cyber security enforcement and integrated new generation technologies that will detect and possibly recover losses through protection of critical business information, without constraining innovation and growth of product or services.
Digital Forensics – Cyber Crime Investigation Summit’ will take place on 24th and 25th November, 2015 in Dubai to discuss the current challenges & trends, impacts of recent attacks, sharing of best-practices and showcasing of emerging technologies that can expedite the investigative process in this digitized world. The summit will host delegations of IT professionals, digital forensics experts, IT auditors, practitioners and researchers from diverse fields, that will provide opportunities for business and intellectual engagement amongst participants tied by a common goal of accelerating their digital forensic programs to mitigate threats and cyber crimes within their business operations.
Topics such as ‘Trends of the past – Comparative analysis of Digital Forensics in the last 5 years’, ‘Analyzing the ROI of investing in Digital Forensics’, ‘Bridging the gap between IT & Legal Department’, ‘Cyber-Threat intelligence – Reshaping your business security’ and many more will be imparted to the participants by leading industry specialists. The summit will also provide a platform for companies to showcase their latest technologies, useful tools, relevant research, investigative techniques, and methods for handling security breaches and cyber crime investigations to the Middle East market.
In an era of global connectivity, cyber security is now at the top of the agenda with high-profile breaches, attacks and other security failures endangering companies and economies. Cyber security is no longer a function of Information Technology, but is now regarded as a board-level responsibility, making it a part of organizational governance.
Cyber Sense World (CSW) will bring together the industry experts, key decision makers and experienced influencers from across the globe to discuss, highlight and analyse the various aspects of Cyber Security.

Securing the Virtual Organization
How can we know what we are protecting if we struggle to understand and keep up with how we and our organizations are changing? It’s time to get a grip on the far-reaching and fundamental changes that are occurring in business today. Organizations today are all virtual, to a greater or lesser degree, and all rely on technologies such as virtualization to deliver their business processes. Most organizations do not own all the systems they depend on; their processes cross many organizations; innovation has become agile and their brand is at the mercy of all who chose to express an opinion. This conference explores the impact of the rise of the virtual organization on security practice; the solutions that are emerging to tackle this environment; and the lessons being learned within professional practice. Acknowledging the need to step away from the technology–driven approach that often dominates traditional systems security management, delegates will explore the foundational concepts that drive security and still apply in a world that is designed to be much less defined than in the past.
