Deloitte Platinum Sponsor of the Cybercrime Security Forum 15

Deloitte was a Platinum Sponsor of the “Cybercrime Security Forum 15” organised by Computrain Technical Institute, for the second consecutive year. The conference took place on the 16th and 17th of November, 2015 at Hilton Park in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The objective of the event was to introduce a broad range of learning opportunities across Information Security. The Industry expert presenters shared with the participants the latest threats, resolutions, technical breakthroughs & protection mechanisms. The speakers provided real answers on how government and business owners can protect themselves against the rising tide of cybercriminals. This event was a great opportunity for connecting with other IT security professionals and IT Security partners that can assist on decision making in regards to the protection of an organisation's information security.

Our Deloitte Cyber Risk Services (CRS) Team delivered two presentations during the event:

It is a fact that Cyprus is not excluded from the cyber-attack zone. During this session, participants had the opportunity to learn about a recent case of a cyber-attack along with the examination and analysis followed to discover the modus operandi of the hackers. The primary focus of this presentation was the intriguing and constant changing landscape of the traditional Digital Forensics Methodology, and the remarkable artifacts that can be uncovered during Memory Forensic Analysis.

Red Teaming - Effective Cyber Security through Innovation

Quoting Donald Rumsfeld, 13th US Secretary of State under George W. Bush, "There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know." Deloitte’s professional maintained a spatial awareness and predicted the movement of the opposing forces and therefore the risks faced by an organisation in order to remain a secure, proactive and resilient posture. To that extent the presenter stressed that innovation is pivotal in maintaining a place ahead of the attackers and Red Teaming provides this type of insight that has been a differentiator for military units at least since World War. This technique is gradually starting to transform the information security industry today. The presenter went on to analyse the differentiators between traditional security assessments and red teaming and how to effectively combine the physical, human and cyber gates under one domain.
