What the market says

We were surprised about the number and quality of the attendees at this e-Crime event in Abu Dhabi. We will be atrending future events!

Regional Marketing Manager, EMEA South, RSA

It was my pleasure to be part of this event. The event was a roaring success in terms of the relevance of topics covered at the time when this Region is facing persistent threats on data security on mobile and phone banking channels. If the spotlight topic on "International Fraud Trends associated with Card Not Present transactions" was informative and reassuring, the presentation on "Cyber Espionage - from China, with Love" (by Moustafa Mahmoud) stole the thunder! Kudos to both the presenters! Look forward to the next event!

Head, Fraud Risk Management Unit, Dubai Bank

Thanks and greeting to arrange such an event. I really enjoyed the event and I learnt a lot. In relation to the subject of security, I believe e-crime is doing a wonderful job by creating such a platform in the form of an event, which is leveraging the security industry experts to spread the security awareness. And I strongly believe that this is an very effective method chosen or thought to create security awareness and equip with a security strategy. It has brought me an insight of knowledge and tools to tackle the current and future e-crimes, security vulnerabilities as a person and a professional. All the Security industry vendors participated in this event were effective to communicate the technology and products. I wish all the best to e-crime and PCI.

I.T. Manager, Royal Jet Group

I felt that the conference discussed very relevant subject matter based on current IT security trends. A good range of new generation security technologies were also introduced to the audience which was quite informative. All in all, the e-Crime conference had a good blend of IT security educational sessions as well as some revealing facts about the ‘how’s’ and ‘what’s’ of the domain.

Many thanks for the invitation, you may note that I attended both last year and this year's e-Crime conference and I must say that it's one of the very unique and very important initiatives of security, fraud and e-Crimes in recent years. Each and every presentation covered the core issues of problems we are facing today in the corporate environment. Each and every presentation was a wake-up call for what more we should be doing in terms of security, fraud and e-crimes as a whole. I very much enjoyed and benefited from this conference and looking forward for more.

After a long time I attended a seminar which made me feel that "Yes I have gained some new knowledge" else its mostly mundane stuff you come across. To be honest, I had some misconceptions cleared during some of the presentations. The quality of the speakers was very good and best about some of them was that they related it to real world. I am quite confident that the knowledge gained will be very useful.

My thanks to the E-Crime Congress team, please continue with the improvements which will continue to make a good event, even better.
