(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) New methods tactics and technologies to combat cyber-threats and win the war against the most sophisticated hackers in the region and globally will be the main highlight at the second gulf information security expo & conference or gisec 2014.

former central intelligence agency chief information security officer robert bigman’s keynote presentation at gisec 2014 will expose the truth about commercial it system security and why most attacks can be thwarted by intelligent it network architecture. he will likewise address the reasons why global corporations and governments keep making the same mistakes as well as why acquiring the best cyber security technology is not necessarily the best approach to prevent cybercrime.

the gisec which serves as the key platform in the region that aims to address issues on global security vulnerabilities and threats against systems applications and personal networks will take place from june 9 to 11 at the dubai world trade centre. the event is set to draw the 3000 trade visitors from 51 countries and more than 100 exhibitors from the world’s leading information security companies and brands.

“the nature of cyber-security attacks is becoming more dangerous and the threats on business and government are becoming more disturbing” bigman said. “hackers are able to penetrate corporate networks for example via weaker partner or supplier networks and are currently studying holding company business model to identify weak it programs or interface. it is time for corporations to fundamentally rethink how they defend their networks and consider relying less on commercial cyber security products and more on secure network and client/server architecture.”
