Digital Forensic, Fraud and IT Security Training (26th-30th June 2017) Nairobi ,Kenya

(Intex Management Institute) #1

It is not a secret that crime incidents involving cyber-crime are on the rise and there is an urgent need for organizations to review their general IT security controls.

With the increasing usage and dependency on IT based operations coupled with growing sophistication in technology, cyber-crime is also on the rise. Attacks on sites, directory and routing services are often linked to advanced international hackers with extortion in mind.

In addition increasing use of computers for processing organizational data has added a new scope to the review and evaluation of internal controls for audit purposes. IT controls are of great value in any computerized system and it is important for an organization to ensure that not only adequate controls exist, but they also work effectively. Internal controls should be commensurate with the risk assessed to as to reduce the impact of identified risks to acceptance levels. There is therefore a need to evaluate the adequacy of internal controls in computer systems to mitigate the risk of loss due to errors, fraud and other acts and disasters or incidents that may cause the system to be unavailable.

This 5-day program is designed to provide a firm base of understanding of cybercrime in an organizational wide context, to show the degree of required competency and proficiency needed in preventing, detecting, and reporting and redressing cyber-crime.

At the e end of the seminar, participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate application of new knowledge of IT security systems
• Identify a range of electronic crime fraud activities
• Identify how cyber-crime can seep into the business
• Spot indicators and detect mechanisms on cybercrime
• Understand required ethical investigations and reporting standards
• Confidently set out fraud policy, best practice and compliance mechanisms.
• Demonstrate how to create an Anti-Fraud culture within the organization

The content of the program will be structured from introductory level, to dismantle some ‘common sense’ assumptions of what CYBER-SECURITY is and gain new insight. The program will then build and follow a format of presentations backed by case studies. For full training value, structured and perceptive group work will be included to help apply new awareness and skills to different fraud scenarios.
Participants must come with their laptops to facilitate practicals and demonstrations during the training.
