ComGuard introduces CHFI programme
Mobasseri says the programme is designed to equip IT security professionals with vital skills to identify an intruder's footprints.

ComGuard, a value-added distributor for IT security products and solutions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has launched the all-new version 8 of the Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI) programme from EC-Council.

The EC-Council CHFI programme prepares designated IT security professionals to track, investigate and apprehend cyber criminals from inside and outside of an organisation.

According to EC-Council CHFIv8 presents a detailed methodological approach towards computer forensics and evidence analysis. It is a comprehensive course covering important forensic investigation scenarios that enables students to acquire hands-on experience on various forensic investigation techniques and standard forensic tools. The company says the skill set is necessary to successfully carry out a thorough computer forensic analysis leading to prosecution of cyber crime perpetrators.

Jay Bavisi, president of EC-Council said: "According to PwC's Information Security Breaches Survey 2010, nearly half of the large organisations admitted that they have experienced insider threats (misuse of web and email access, misuse of confidential information and unauthorised access to systems or data). Organisations today face a very challenging threat in the form of insider abuse that must be addressed to ensure the safety of their firms' digital assets."

EC-Council says it has certified professionals from Fortune 500 companies, as well as various IT giants, conglomerates and government agencies around the world.

"Considering the quantum rise in cyber crimes, security breaches and incidents of hacking in the region, we are pleased to introduce the world's most comprehensive computer hacking programme in the Middle East," said, Mohammad Mobasseri, senior vice president at ComGuard. "The programme is designed to equip IT security professionals with the necessary skills to identify an intruder's footprints and to properly gather the required evidence to prosecute offenders in a court of law."
