Digital investigations and litigation support company AccessData Group will take part in the SecureDubai conference to generate regional awareness about digital forensics and incident response technologies.

AccessData is a co-host of the security event being organised by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC) on 15th May, 2012, at the Capital Club, Dubai.

"Companies in the region are beginning to realise that there is a need for holistic cyber-security. The malware attacks plaguing the region are growing not only in volume but also in sophistication. Merely having a firewall or basic security system in place is no longer sufficient. Both government and private enterprises need to address this by developing a security strategy that includes digital forensics and incident response," said Simon Whitburn, VP International Sales at AccessData Group.

Adrian Culley, global engineer for AccessData, will discuss the rise of targeted high-tech and e-Crime in his keynote address and will discuss the increase in malware attacks being seen around the world, including the Middle East, and the risks they pose to Critical National Infrastructure.

He will also discuss the need for dynamic malware analysis tools and visualisation solutions to detect, investigate, remediate and prevent such attacks.

AccessData will be demonstrating its new Cyber Intelligence and Response Technology (CIRT) solution that integrates large-scale data auditing, network-based analysis and host-based analysis into a single, easy-to-use interface. CIRT enables government and commercial organisations to effectively address data spillage, external threats and internal threats, aiding incident response by providing the most comprehensive view into critical data.
