Next month will see intelligence and security experts from all over southern Africa gathering at the Sandton Convention Centre for the ISS (Intelligence Support Systems) World South Africa.
ISS World South Africa is the world’s largest gathering of African law enforcement, intelligence and homeland security analysts as well as telecom operators responsible for lawful interception, hi-tech electronic investigations and network intelligence gathering.
South African leading security and intelligence monitoring company, iSolv Technologies, will be heavily represented at the conference.
iSolv CEO Jayesh Nana and CTO Tumisho Matlala are on the list of speakers at the event.
iSolv is also looking forward to interacting with conference attendees at its exhibition stand.
The conference will present methods and useful tools for the industry (law enforcement, public safety and government intelligence communities) to use in the fight against cyber crime, including drug trafficking, cyber money laundering, human trafficking, terrorism and other criminal activities conducted over today’s telecommunications network and the Internet.
iSolv Technologies has a range of security products to counter cyber crime, and more information on this will be available at its exhibition stand.
The event will run from 15-17 July 2014 and sessions will cover different topics including the next-generation of IP interception, social network monitoring, secure human intelligence, mass monitoring, covert intrusion and collection solution for smartphones and tablets, as well as other related topics.
Other interesting seminars that will form part of the conference include a focus on the “dark Web” and Bitcoin-based transactions.
The invention of Bitcoin has long held the attention of the online community, with interest in who created Bitcoin leading the world media into a frantic search for the inventor.
It is still not clear who the inventor of Bitcoin is.
IBM predicts there will be a trillion interconnected devices by 2015 – quick math says that is 143 devices per living being.
The need for online security has never been more important and so the ISS conference is such a timely event for the industry.
Matthew Lucas, a computer scientist and VP at TeleStrategies, will chair the session on how the Web is getting darker, and will take a novel look at the spectrum of devices entering the market (eg, sensor technologies, telematics, wearable technologies); what all these devices are purported to do; how criminals are leveraging these devices; and discuss the broad and furious implications for law enforcement and intelligence analysts.
There will also be a pre-conference training session ahead of the conference (on 15 July) where people attending the seminars will be taught about social media and intelligence investigations; the successful use of online social media in criminal investigations; Facebook tools, tricks, and techniques that investigators need to know; as well as other topics.
