Mr. Kelvin Gonatha said that this event is very important for all businesses in any industries, especially for a company’s IT security team to enhance their insights to the advancement of IT security, because attacks on IT security continues to develop along with technological advancements.

In his presentation, he revealed that nowadays, the main target of cybercrime is human. This is called “social engineering”, hackers use psychological manipulation to trick users and then hack information technology security system. “Social engineering is targeting the weakest chain in computer security systems, that is human or user. As time goes by, technology has increasingly advanced and made its security systems difficult to hack. Therefore, users are the easiest thing to be the target of cybercrime attacks.” said Mr. M. Nuh Al-Azhar.
