Business continuity, crisis management, and cybersecurity are the top-rated risks for 2021 especially for a country such as Qatar which is driven by a digitized economy.
World Cyber Security Summit is a thought-leadership driven, business-focused initiative that provides a platform for CISOs who are looking to explore new-age threats and the technologies/strategies to mitigate them.
The show is virtually hosting CISOs across industry sectors from Qatar who will meet, network, learn and engage with some of the world’s renowned technology thought-leaders, subject matter experts and technology innovators in a constructive, open-dialogue environment to find solutions for issues hindering their information/cyber security.
In light of the health safety recommendations by the Governments across the globe, we are hosting the fourth edition of World Cyber Security Summit for CISOs & Cyber Security leaders as a digital event, in lieu of an in-person event. We look forward to bringing together our ecosystem of tech leaders in this new virtual format to learn, connect and collaborate together. Stay tuned for more details to come.
During Q1 2020, the GCC recorded 8,984 email spam attacks, the 4th-highest in Asia; 17 malware threats, the 3rd-highest in Asia; and 772 URL attacks, the 7th-highest in Asia.
Industry experts recommend a multilayered approach to protect all fronts and prevent users from accessing malicious domains that could deliver malware.
THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON QATAR'S CYBER SECURITY
Qatar recorded 2,033 email, URL and file threats related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Q1 2020, the second-highest in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)
Qatar recorded one of the highest figures in the GCC, including 1,923 email spam attacks, two malware threats and 108 URL attacks.
Of particular concern is ransomware, which has seen both high numbers and impact during the pandemic, as work from home initiatives risk loss of sensitive information.
We are extremely impressed and blown away by this experience. Thank you for the amazing platform, the great support, the turn around on requests and just being ON from the get-go.
