Serupepeli Neiko of the Fiji Police Force attended a Cyber Forensic Workshop in Singapore and had this to say about the training he received, “Dr Ali is one of the trainers I have come across who has vast knowledge and experience in dealing with computer related offences. It was an honor meeting him.”

Ethical Hacking: In the fight against malicious (black hat) hackers a breed of ethical (white hat) hackers has arisen to test, probe and secure information systems using the same tools and techniques as criminal hackers. Dr. Jahangiri received his Instructor Circle of Excellence Award not only for his Certified Hacking Forensic Investigation workshops but also for his skills as a trainer for the EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) workshop.

Mr. M. Karsan attended a Certified Ethical Hacker Workshop and commented, “the fine balance achieved between the theory and practical structure of the course really aided the learning process, making it beneficial, intuitive and thoroughly enjoyable.”

Training, speaking and lecturing on ethical hacking has taken Dr. Jahangiri all over the world including to Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, Brussels and Dubai. He has also put pen to paper and written the extraordinary book ‘Live Hacking: The Ultimate Guide to Hacking Techniques & Countermeasures for Ethical Hackers & IT Security Experts’.

2010 will see Dr. Ali Jahangiri running ‘Live Hacking’ workshops with Prague and Johannesburg being the first cities to play host to this new and comprehensive workshop for white-hat computer hacking. Based on his ‘Live Hacking’ book, the workshop will introduce IT professionals to the world of hacking and network security and give them the knowledge they need to combat the persistent cyber criminals.

ISO27001 and Information Security Management Systems: ISO27001 is part of the ISO27000-series of international standards laying down the best practice recommendations for information security management. Specifically ISO27001 is the standard to bring information security under explicit management control. As a formal ISO standard organizations which have adopted ISO27001 need to be formally audited and certified. Dr. Jahangiri is a recognized ISO27001 lead auditor and is available internationally to speak and lecture on ISO27001 gap analysis, risk assessment and implementation. He is also able to provide ISO27001 internal auditing services.

Penetration Testing: A penetration test determines how well your organization’s security policies protect your assets by trying to gain access to your network and information assets in the same way a hacker would. Tests can range from an overview of the security environment to an attempted “hacking” with the intent of obtaining investigative information.

Related to Ethical Hacking, Dr. Ali Jahangiri has extensive knowledge and experience of penetration testing. Using the Open Source Security Testing Methodology (which is a peer-reviewed methodology for performing security tests) Dr. Jahangiri has travelled the globe talking about penetration testing and the OSSTMM as well as actually evaluating the security of different computer systems and networks by performing penetration tests.

Information Security Risk Management: Many organizations focus solely on infrastructure weaknesses and fail to establish the effect on their most important information assets. This leads to a gap between an organization’s operational and information technology requirements, placing the assets at risk. Current approaches to information security risk management tend to be incomplete. Determining your information security risks is the first step in managing them. Once an organization has identified its risks, it can build mitigation plans to address those risks. Dr. Jahangiri has offered consultancy and training about Information Security Risk Management on the international stage.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: Business continuity and disaster recovery defines an organization’s ability to recover from a disaster and continue operations. Developing and implementing a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan is key to ensuring your ability to continue business after an unexpected event.

Dr. Ali Jahangiri has helped organizations all over the world with impact analysis, threat analysis, definition of impact scenarios, recovery requirement documentation and solution design enable them to recover when disaster strikes.
