EG-CERT Organizes Advanced Workshop on Cybersecurity



The Egyptian Computer Emergency Readiness Team (EG-CERT) organized an advanced workshop on cybersecurity, on August 8-15, at its premises in Smart Village, as part of the Sectoral Incident Response Center Cadre Development Program.
 
The workshop is one in a series of training courses launched last October as part of the cybersecurity strategic plan. The courses aim to qualify young people to face cyberthreats in different sectors, enhance response to cyber risks, and handle cyber incidents affecting different state sectors and institutions.
 
The workshop addressed key topics including handling incidents, checking device memory and network tools, Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) logs, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Wi-Fi forensics, how to use digital forensic analysis to investigate a data breach; malware analysis, types and classifications based on behavior; ransomware, Trojan horses and spyware.
 
EG-CERT was established in 2009 as part of the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA). EG-CERT is charged with providing computer and information security incident response, support, defense and analysis against cyberattacks, and collaboration with governmental and financial entities and any other critical information infrastructure sectors. EG-CERT also provides early warning against malware spreading and massive cyberattacks against Egypt’s telecommunication infrastructure.
