(openPR) - ComGuard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security products and solutions in the Middle East and North Africa region announced the launch of the all-new Version 8 of the Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (C|HFI) program from EC-Council.|
Our leading partners, New Horizons, Lebanon, and Global Knowledge, KSA are part of the global launch of CHFIv8 in Lebanon and KSA respectively.
A report by Symantec confirms that “Cybercrime has surpassed illegal trafficking as the leading criminal money maker.” With the cost of security breaches almost tripling every two years, organizations need to designate well-trained security professionals to perform digital discovery, evidence acquisition and analysis in an acceptable manner to ensure that they trace, reduce or eliminate key security risks that face their organizations.
EC-Council C|HFIv8 program prepares designated security professionals to track, investigate and apprehend cyber criminals from the inside and outside of the organization.
CHFIv8 presents a detailed methodological approach towards computer forensics and evidence analysis. It is a comprehensive course covering important forensic investigation scenarios that enables students to acquire hands-on experience on various forensic investigation techniques and standard forensic tools. This skillset is necessary to successfully carryout a thorough computer forensic analysis leading to prosecution of perpetrators.
Among the salient features of the C|HFIv8 are:
• Revamped courseware with more emphasis on hands-on forensic techniques and methodologies.
• Over 200 labs, real-life cases, evidence files and forensic challenges
• Over 500 industry standard forensics lab tools
• Result-oriented, descriptive and analytical lab manual.
Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said, “According to PwC’s Information Security Breaches Survey 2010, nearly half of the large organizations admit that they have experienced insider threats (misuse of web and email access, misuse of confidential information, and unauthorized access to systems or data). Organizations today face a very challenging threat in the form of insider abuse that must be addressed to ensure the safety of their organizations’ digital assets.”
EC-Council has certified professionals from Fortune 500 companies as well as various IT giants, conglomerates and government agencies around the world. The corporations and agencies include: US Department of Defence, FBI, CIA, Microsoft, Symantec, Deloitte, and IBM.
"Considering the quantum of rise in cyber crimes, security breaches and incidents of hacking gained momentum in the region, we are pleased to introduce world’s most comprehensive computer hacking program, C|HFI v8 in the Middle East region," said, Mohammad Mobasseri, Senior Vice President at ComGuard. "C|HFI v8 is designed to equip security professionals with the necessary skills to identify an intruder’s footprints and to properly gather the required evidence to prosecute the offenders in the court of law."
