By  Mark Sutton Published  September 2, 2012

help AG is set to host another edition of its Security Spotlight Forum this month.

The forum, which will focus on new developments in security, will take place in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar.

Topics of discussion at the event will include DDoS prevention, user-aware security infrastructure, IPv6, secure password management, two-factor authentication and Domain Name System (DNS) security. help AG partners F5, Infoblox, Juniper Networks and Mi-Token, are all supporting the event, and will provide live demonstrations of their different solutions.

Stephan Berner, managing director at help AG said: "The purpose of the forum has always been to inform our customers about the various innovations in the market. At help AG, we constantly monitor the security trends in the Middle East, and each quarter we carefully select the key themes for the SSF events which best address these trends. This event is a great opportunity for our customers to hear first-hand from our vendor partners about the latest technologies and how they can benefit from their deployment."

The Security Spotlight Forum will also include a presentation on Business Continuity Management System Requirements, from ISO expert Dr Angelika Plate.

"In June this year, the international standard ISO 22301 'Business Continuity Management System - Requirements' replaced the British standard BS 25999-2. The new ISO 22301 is the first international management system standard that follows the new ISO framework that all management systems have to adhere to now. The ISO framework helps to integrate different management system standards and the application of this framework will have a noticeable effect on the way ISO 22301 presents the requirements for business continuity. We will highlight the most important differences between ISO 2301 and BS 25999-2 at our Security Spotlight Forum," Plate said.

The event will be held in Doha, Qatar on the 12th of September 2012, in Dubai on the 17th of September 2012 and in Abu Dhabi on the 18th of September 2012.

Registration for the forum is available at http://www.helpag.com/events.
