Towards big data analytics and cyber forensics for effective government security

Cyber Defence and Network Security UAE (CDANS) is a two day summit focussing on the increasing move towards the inclusion of big data analytics and cyber forensics in government cyber security in the UAE. Previously considered by some as the preserve of finance and manufacturing sectors, UAE security agencies and government organisations are moving beyond traditional purchases of cyber security software and systems towards analytical preventative and predictive measures as well as rapid response to create a holistic defence and preparedness programme.

Coupled with the UAE government’s doubling of cyber security spending to over $10Bn USD over the next five years and the goal of ensuring all services are e-enabled by 2015, this conference cannot have come at a better time.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn about UAE Government, Defence and Police cyber requirements and identify where your solution will best fit in
  • Ensure your solution remains front of mind at a time of $10Bn expenditure on cyber defence and network security in the UAE
  • Demonstrate to government and regional forces that you take their challenges and requirements seriously enough to attend or support this event in order to learn more at the time to get involved
  • Explore the move towards greater cyber forensics and big data analytics in the UAE’s fight against cyber crime
