Intersec will welcome ethical hacker, Freaky Clown (FC) for the first time in the Middle East as a headline speaker at the event who will give deep insights into the world of cybercrime.
As a well-known ethical hacker and social engineer, FC brings a truly unique perspective to Intersec’s inaugural Cyber Security Lab conference, where he will talk about how cyber criminals circumnavigate access controls, how governments and organizations can identify their cyber weaknesses and what they can do to improve their security.
Intersec’s Cyber Security Lab will focus on investigative techniques, forensic capabilities, and public-private partnerships to prevent cross border digital terrorism. It has been developed through a strategic partnership between Intersec and the UAE Cyber Security Council, which sets out to strengthen cybersecurity in the Emirates and improve co-ordination and response times to potential attacks.
Commenting on his participation, FC said: “At a time when governments, individuals and organisations the world over are experiencing a steep increase in cyber security threats, I am in a unique position to be able to share inside information on the very people that they are being attacked by. I can help them become more aware, more secure and more capable of defending themselves and look forward to doing so at such a unique event like Intersec which brings the industry’s most important stakeholders together under one roof.”
The Cyber Security Lab is one of six Intersec conferences being staged from 16-18 January 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Under the theme of ‘Uniting the world’s leading industry specialists for the safety and security of future generations’, the three-day program is packed with hard-hitting discussions featuring global leaders debating, and exchanging perspectives on challenges, strategic initiatives and cooperation to foster safety and security of all. The full programme features over 500 speakers – the largest conference platform for the sector on a world-class stage.
Alex Nicholl, Messe Frankfurt Middle East’s Head of Intersec, added said: “Intersec’s commitment to bringing the brightest, most qualified experts to the stage in 2022 is exemplified by the attendance of Freaky Clown. Perhaps more than most, he understands how cyber criminals think, how they operate and what tools they use to beat security controls. Having worked for major global organizations like Raytheon Missile Systems, the depth and breadth of his insight must be heard – and we are incredibly excited to hear what he has to say at Intersec 2022.”
Demonstrating Intersec’s strategic importance to the UAE, it is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and official Supporters include Dubai Police, Dubai Civil Defence, Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA), the UAE Cyber Security Council and Dubai Municipality.
