8th e-Crime & Information Security Dubai, 10 February 2016
Government and enterprise in the UAE take cyber security seriously: the Emirates are at the centre of efforts to promote cyber security in the wider region. The government was first to establish a national authority on cyber security in 2012 and two years later opened a new Dubai Centre for e-Security which aims to develop efficient ways to swap information among all the relevant government authorities and combat cyber crimes of all types.
Despite these initiatives, the UAE is an increasing target for global cyber attackers, partly because of its developed financial, energy and real estate sectors. And the UAE’s focus on the development of smart cities, in which cyber attacks can quickly compromise vital private and public sector services such as utilities, transportation and banking, makes watertight cyber security must-have.
This event will provide sophisticated analysis and recommendations for businesses who want to use cyber security as a strategic tool to boost the P&L.
