Over 200 CISOs, Heads of Security, Industry Practitioners, IT Decision Makers, Cyber Security leaders and Experts in Cyber Security space will convene virtually to discuss the region’s cyber security challenges and opportunities. The virtual conference will also discuss core data strategies and digital infrastructures that will drive cyber security awareness in the MENA region.
Thursday, 04 February 2021: With a special focus on the MENA region, World Cyber Security Summit – the second MENA edition is set to take place virtually on the 15 February 2021 (9 AM – 5 PM Gulf Standard Time).
Due to the rapid growth of technology and network infrastructure, the rate of cyber security risk has increased significantly in the region. With the increase in usage of IoT devices, work from home / remote setups and an inadequate cyber security awareness – the region has seen a rise in the cyber-attacks.
With this in mind, the event will focus on topics such as cyber defence for critical infrastructure, cyber security for smart cities: advanced technologies for citizens’ safety, law enforcement to combat cyber-crimes and cyber-terrorisms, the importance of multi-factor authentication (MFA), Digital workplace security: creating safe remote workplace and much more.
The show will feature a ground-breaking collaboration of experts such as Dr Bushra Al Blooshi – Research and Innovation Head, Dubai Electric Security Center, UAE; Dr Osama El Hassan – Vice-Chair of Emirates Health Informatics Society, Specialist, Health Informatics & Smart Health Department, Dubai Health Authority, Board Member, International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth, Dubai Health Authority, UAE; Mohammed Al-Mengash – General Manager Cyber Security Strategy and Architecture, Saudi Telecom Company, Saudi Arabia; Muhammad Tariq Ahmed Khan – Head of Cybersecurity Audit, Arab National Bank, Saudi Arabia and Nisreen Al Khatib – Women in CyberSecurity Middle East to name a few.
“World Cyber Security Summit will address the biggest cyber security challenges faced by enterprises in the MENA region as we have hand-picked thought leaders and experts from a broad range of industries. The event will also host technology providers specialised in cyber security to help organisations identify threat areas and suitable solutions to tackle them,” said Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.
The show will be hosted on the virtual events platform Vmeets to help participants network and conduct business in an interactive and immersive virtual environment.
