To all my fellow IT and IS professionals, “e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress” is an event you really don’t want to miss. It offers an excellent balance between technical value, market insights and good networking opportunities with peers & vendors. Compared to other events, it is unmatched. The level of organization is unparalleled, kudos to the AKJ team for their effort.

Network & Information Security Head, Sharjah Broadcasting Authority

Thank you for inviting me to the event. I believe it was the best platform for the industry to look at different solutions related to AML and Cybersecurity, which is becoming one of the major risk to the financial service industry.

I got the opportunity to meet with the representatives of well-known companies  who are providing best solutions related to AML and Cybersecurity. I believe we can get the benefit from this event and in the future we may engage with a few of those companies who are providing various AML and Cybersecurity solutions. Once again thank you very much for hosting such a wonderful event and looking forward to participate in the upcoming event in September.

Not like many security events - e-Crime always brings what’s happening right now in security in the real world and not what books and magazines are talking about from previous years.

Group CIO, Belhasa International

Attending the 11th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai was an inspiring experience and I found the presentations very useful and well-structured.

IT Manager, Al Muqren Exchange

I found the organisation and location of the e-Crime event in Dubai to be excellent. AKJ Associates ensured that there was the right mix in the presentations and that it was not only vendors pushing their latest solution. The real-world speakers provided real information that could be taken away and acted upon. I would recommend to anyone to attend AKJ events in the future.

Indeed, the success of the event was self evident.

I found the conference valuable, very informative, great agenda and of course the invaluable networking. The variety of information being presented was very useful and I was very happy with the workshop. I found particularly useful the presentation about the company’s presence in the social networking arena and how this is being used by hackers. I was very pleased that there were conversations revolving around the topic of security awareness programs – the importance of such a program, creating it, measuring its effectiveness and getting management buy-in. Looking forward to the next event and thanks once again for the invite.
