Demand for cyber security in Qatar has grown multifold after the most recent cyber attacks and the approved penalty of 1.37 million USD.
Critical sectors in Qatar – including but not limited to finance and energy – have increased their dependency on technology and state-of-the-art ICT solutions to deliver high-quality, efficient, and effective services. Qatar’s Advisory (Shura) Council has approved the new data privacy law, requiring companies to increase their level of data security and protection against cyber threats. Failure to do so could result in hefty fines of up to 1.37 million USD (5 million QAR).
Endorsed by the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Naseba’s 11th Cyber Defence Summit will address the importance of protecting critical infrastructure and sensitive information, help companies procure cyber security solutions and services, and create further awareness of cyber security among the youth of Qatar.
Over 120 CIOs, CISOs and Heads of IT and Security will participate on a private and complimentary basis. Primarily representing organisations with critical infrastructure and sensitive information, they will discuss current and future challenges along with associated solutions, benchmark standards and strategies with peers, and procure solutions for their ongoing and upcoming projects.
Majority of the attendees were decision makers and key influencers. We are confident of doing business with them soon.Associate Vice President, Spire Solutions
