    The Etisalat Academy will hold a three-day workshop in Dubai on
    Saturday to study effective security measures against Internet
    hacking. The workshop will be held in collaboration with MIS and ISI,
    leading American companies in information, networks and database
    The event will conclude with a virtual debate led by noted information
    security consultant Ken Cutler between two teams of network
    specialists and hackers. The participants will analyse the latest
    vulnerability, auditing, testing and hacking methods.
    They will also discuss solutions and security criteria to reduce the
    possible invasions in classified, economic and financial systems and
    networks to counter hacking. The interactive virtual debate is
    believed to be the first of its kind in the Middle East.
    Those attending will include representatives from the GCC countries
    and UAE organisations such as the Armed Forces, police, banks and
    private companies. The Etisalat Academy recently reached several
    agreements with leading American and European information security
    companies to issue four specialised diplomas.
    These diplomas pertain to network managers, database administrators
    and IT executives. Meanwhile, the academy is also preparing its second
    international conference on "computer forensics and decision-making
    systems" to be held in Dubai in October.
    ISN is hosted by SecurityFocus.com
