As more and more people and processes transition to the digital world, they face an ever increasing risk of cyber threats. No doubt, security systems have become more robust and advanced than earlier, but cyber criminals tend to remain one step ahead in the game. In 2014, nearly 1 billion Personally Identifiable Information (PII) records were stolen. Globally, more than 25 percent of the organizations have experienced an APT (advanced persistent threat) attack. In the most recent past, the WannaCryranson attack devastated many businesses and organizations, an attack which acted as a wakeup call for cyber security experts. Digitalization cannot be stopped since it is the future of mankind, which implies that cyber security professionals would have to work even harder in the future to secure critical data and systems.
To defeat such cyber threats, cyber security experts will have to be highly pro-active. Simply reacting to a cyber-threat won’t help much as the damage would have been done by then. Cyber security experts themselves need to pro-actively search for security loopholes that may be present in any system and fix it before it can be exploited by a cyber-criminal. “Cyph3r” by Ejtemaat is one such initiative that aims to train and to skill cyber security professionals in the latest cyber warfare techniques and strategies.cyph3r, a conference to be held from 19thto 23rd November 2017 in Dubai, UAE, is a unique ethical hacking and learning platform for individuals; cyber security professionals;technology leaders and; organizations.
