NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in real-time and forensics-based cybersecurity and network monitoring solutions, announced today that NIKSUN’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO, Dr. Parag Pruthi will give a keynote talk at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) Cybersecurity Conference in Abu Dhabi on March 25, 2014.
The NYIT Global Cybersecurity Conference brings together eminent cybersecurity experts to address threats faced by businesses, governments, and individuals. The event attracts leaders from major business and governmental agencies to explore and develop defenses for our increasingly enmeshed world.
In addition to founding and leading NIKSUN, Dr. Pruthi is recognized as one of the foremost experts on cybersecurity, in the world. He has been invited 5 years in a row to the NATO NIAS Symposium to give a keynote speech in front of over 800 leading security practitioners from 28 NATO nations, as well as giving prominent talks at AT&T’s cyber security event and other major conferences. Dr. Pruthi has also been invited by various governments to help draft their nation’s cyber security program, and his expertise has been sought by many to help solve some of the major cybersecurity investigations spanning the globe.
We are pleased and honored to have Dr. Parag Pruthi as a keynote speaker at our NYIT event in Abu Dhabi,” said Dr. Marta Panero, Director of Strategic Partnerships, School of Engineering and Computer Sciences, New York Institute of Technology. “Dr. Pruthi’s key expertise in assisting both governments and the commercial sector in combatting cybersecurity threats is of paramount importance to our audience and will no doubt be well-received.”
Middle East businesses face unprecedented levels of cyberattacks, as global security vulnerabilities and threats against systems, applications, and personal networks have reached their highest-ever recorded level as announced in the Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report.
In the rapidly evolving world of security threats, total global threat alerts increased 14 percent year-on-year from 2012 to 2013. Around the world, a sample of 30 of the world’s largest Fortune 500 companies generated visitor traffic to websites that host malware, with the Middle East’s energy, oil, and gas sector seeing a sharp rise in malware attacks.
The number of cyberattacks has risen over 40 percent in just the past few years at the alarming pace of millions of attacks per day.
“Cyber warfare, cyber espionage, and cyber threats are prominently on the international stage, and the Middle East with its vast energy resources has become a prime target,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, Chairman, & CEO of NIKSUN. “The Middle East, being of strategic importance finds itself the subject of many conflicts and must therefore prepare itself hastily. The question is not when they will be targeted by cyberattacks but what minefields and backdoors have already been put in place and are being put in place even as I make these statements. For those having a strategic interest in the region and the cyber capabilities to penetrate sophisticated security measures, the race had already begun many years ago. Cyber defense capabilities including detection and forensics are key to rooting out already laid back doors and bringing to a halt exfiltration of information already taking place.”
