ISnSC R&D announces Cyber-Defence Centre
Centre is designed to offer cyber-defence services to the MENA region
ISnSC R&D has announced a Pre-emptive Cyber-Defence (PCD) Centre for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The centre is designed to offer various cyber defence related services, including consultations and solutions which are designed to help achieve Government Cyber-Defence (GCD) capabilities. The PCD Centre will also provide related services directly to the government and financial sectors and will hold intensive cyber defence training courses.
One of the main services offered by the PCD Centre is an annual subscription to the PCD hacking group.
The service simulates real-life hacking scenarios utilizing the same methods and techniques as were used in actual advanced cyber-attacks.
In cooperation with security labs worldwide, the PCD Centre has been working on developing a wide range of security tools.
"Traditional cyber-security measures are not always effective in face of elevated threats," said Sherif Hazzaa, managing director of ISnSC R&D.
"Using the same cyber-security measures that are in place right now while attacks and threats are evolving will eventually lead to an undesirable result, especially when most government and banks are moving and spending on cloud computing and electronic services."
The PCD Centre hopes to enable a cyber-presence to confront future cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure and SCADA systems.
The PCD Centre will include the Providence platform developed by ISnSC, which is designed to provide nation-wide network insights with deep analysis.
This deep analysis is designed to enable law enforcement agencies to have a better view of cyber threats. The platform also features Identity Tracking across different social networks as well as showing attack originating nodes.
