Event Overview

The advent of digitization among the countries of the Middle East has increased the growing exposure to the risk of cyber-attacks. Governments and authorities in Oman and the Middle East have now directed their focus towards cybersecurity, releasing cybersecurity frameworks and mandating country-specific regulatory policies emphasizing the need to have efficient monitoring and detection in place. IT security and tech sector are developing cutting-edge solutions, sharing insights with industry experts and equipping themselves with the right tools to protect their businesses from rapidly-evolving cyber attackers. Cyber threats are constantly evolving and threatening to affect global organizations in their day to day activities.

In order to develop a framework to improve critical infrastructure cybersecurity, all business entities need to continually identify cybersecurity loop holes, create a robust cyber protection blueprint, combat evolving cyber attacks and sustain the effects and adversities of Cybersecurity risk management. This will enable and ensure overall efficiency in Cybersecurity and help develop a comprehensive and globally viable view of how technology affects our daily existence in reshaping our economic, social, cultural and work environments.
