Naples, FL, June 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The success of digitization initiatives in UAE have brought with them an added and growing exposure to the risk of cyber attacks. These attacks have over time intensified and can lead to potential derailment of the digitization progress in the country.
UAE is home to some of the largest corporations and industries which have in part, made the region a tempting cyber crime hub. Recent high profile cyber attacks in UAE and the Middle East like Trojan.Laziok (2015), Operation Cleaver (2014) and the Saudi Aramco virus attack in 2012 have exposed the underlying vulnerability of the region's cyber security infrastructure.
A KPMG report on cyber security claims that UAE is on the list of top 10 destinations targeted by cyber criminals and cyber threats have been growing across key sectors like financial services, oil & gas, technology, government, retail, construction and healthcare. Most IT departments in the country do not have a clear view of their cyber risks due to erratically implemented cyber monitoring and threat intelligence.
As organizations in UAE seek to shore up their defenses against increasingly creative and determined hackers, innovative cyber security solutions are in high demand. 2nd Annual Cyber Resilience & InfoSec Conference 2018 organized by Fleming, will bring together global cyber security leaders, leading IT professionals and regulatory experts from around the globe. The two day conference will focus on creating and promoting effective strategies which seek to strengthen and secure the existing IT infrastructure in the region.
This years edition of Cyber Resilience & InfoSec Conference will host top cyber security leaders from some of the biggest players in the region such as Dr. Mohammad Khaled – Regulation and Supervision Bureau, UAE (IT Compliance and Digital Transformation Specialist); Dr. Maj. Hamad Khalifa Al Nuaimi – Abu Dhabi Police GHQ, UAE (Head of Telecommunications Section); Sultan Al-Owais – Prime Minister's Office, UAE (Director of IT); Ebrahim Hamdan Al Alkeem – Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, UAE (Head of Information Security Governance); Dr. Jassim Haji – ex-CIO of Gulf Air, Bahrain (Technology Expert); Fuad Al-Ansari - Leading Oil and Gas Company, UAE (Vice President of IT); Abdul Manan Qureshi – Riyadh Bank, Singapore (Head of Cyber Resilience, Crisis Management and Business Continuity); Irene Corpuz – Abu Dhabi Government Entity, UAE (It Planning & Security Head, Planning and Technology Division); Ahmad Mohd Darwish Al Emadi – UAE Government Entity, UAE (Chief Information Security Officer).
Cyber threats are here to stay and growing awareness of their severity must be matched with increased investment in cyber security. To avoid financial and reputation losses and stave off even more catastrophic damage types, businesses need to commit themselves to continuous education on the emerging threat landscape.
Cyber Resilience & InfoSec Conference 2018 will be held from 5th-6th September 2018 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
