MENA Cyber Security Digi Conference
While digitalisation had been on the rise across all industries, it has swiftly accelerated due to events of the previous 12 months. Although this has helped both people and companies to adapt, it has led to a dramatic increase in cyber threats and attacks. Damages from cybercrime expected to hit $6 trillion this year (up from $3 trillion in 2015), according to a report from Cybersecurity Ventures, the UAE alone has seen a 250% increase in cyberattacks in 2020.
The blurring line between digital and physical domains indicates that nations and organisations will only be secure if they incorporate cybersecurity features, principles and frameworks that are a necessity, especially for organisations with high-value assets. In today’s battles, stakeholders must adapt to fight against attackers that are silent, distributed, varied and technically savvy.
The MENA Cyber Security Forum Digi Conference will gather the key stakeholders from the across the region, from different industry verticals, to share and learn from their experiences and set out a roadmap for the months to come. Online identity, confidentiality technology, and cyber in the automated world are just some of the critical talking points to be discussed throughout this influential summit.
