Cyber Warfare is when individuals acting via the internet or through viruses
malevolently attack industry, business, social utilities and national security
with an intent to cause disruption or damage. Such individuals need only a
relatively simple computer capability to make such Cyber attacks devastating.
mi2g successfully predicted the Cyber Attack to businesses, governments
and financial markets in early January, which was brought home during the
recent NATO-Serbia parallel Cyber War between March and May this year.
The keynote speaker will be DK Matai, the Founder of mi2g software
(www.mi2g.com) located in Central London and focussed on providing software
solutions to financial institutions and large corporations worldwide. DK will
relate mi2g's leading edge bespoke security architecture experience
in countering the threat from Cyber Warfare and examine specific case studies.
mi2g is at the forefront of evaluating this risk and putting together
corporate solutions through its Security Intelligence Products and Systems
(SIPS) Division. This is a by invitation only reception.
