Nispana in association with DNJ Saudi Arabia is excited to announce its 3rd Annual Middle East Cyber Security Summit on the 26 & 27 March, 2017 in Riyadh at the Riyadh Marriott

Global organizations continue to grapple with the cyber security challenges, with the convergence of Internet-connected things, there will be newer risks. These challenges are only likely to increase with the existence of less assertive regulatory and legislative agendas, and also the emergence of a new generation of ‘digital natives’ leading to an exponential rise in malicious code activities. With growth in demand for data centers and managed and cloud services expected to be in the double and triple digits, there appears to be significant opportunity in this segment of Saudi Arabia’s ICT market. Pressure on departmental expenditures in the public sector and a subsequent slowing of growth in the private sector could act as drivers for this expansion as customers seek cost-saving synergies. However, there are also issues to address, including security fears, regulation and the development of effective strategic partnerships. There is a sharp rise in spending in security technology, but without the necessary supporting investment in improving awareness, governance, and processes. ICT is set to play a pivotal role especially in the key areas like infrastructure for cloud services, data centers, disaster recovery, big data and analytics, mobility and security. If your firm provides one or more of the above services, this is one event you cannot afford to miss out on!

This summit focusses on future expected threats and measures, also aims at global collaboration of public, private and academic sectors. This summit will attract over 200 plus CISO’s senior ICT and cyber security officials from the MENA region to discuss, find strategic directions and plans to tackle emerging threats to the global and regional information security sector .
