Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
Cyberspace is growing and the digital world is forever expanding into all areas of our lives. 23% growth in active social media accounts (UAE since 2014), 48% mobile social media accounts, internet penetration at 51% and 73% proliferation of smartphones and a CCTV camera seemingly at every corner; the numbers alone demonstrate that digital sources are valuable forensics sources.
Abu Dhabi will soon see more speed cameras in the western region, Madinat Zayed is investing in 16 high-tech cameras while Dubai Police recently developed a 100millionUSD forensic lab with a specialised digital unit not to mention the aeCERT which is making headlines. Similar investments are seen across the GCC where Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar now have highly capable CERT centres to deal with Cybercrime and the type of attacks which have become too common.
The Digital Forensics and Analysis Summit will provide a platform for international experts and GCC practitioners to share best practice and real life case studies on how technology is used in their forensic departments to extract evidence that is able to stand up in trial. We will also be joined by experts that use digital tools to enhance their traditional forensic investigation demonstrating the opportunities for inter-discipline coordination and applying a ‘total-policing’ approach.
