Cyber Sense World to focus on essential aspects of cyber security

September 25, 2016, Muscat, Oman

In an era of global connectivity, cyber security is now at the top of the agenda with high-profile breaches, attacks and other security failures endangering companies and economies. 90% of companies worldwide recognize they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against Cyber-attacks, as per the Global Risks 2015 report published by the World Economic Forum (WEF). In the Middle East, total number of cyber incidents during the first quarter of 2016 was 15% more than in the same period of 2015. (Source: Kaspersky Security Network)
