INFORMATION SECURITY REMAINS A CRITICAL CONCERN FOR THE UAE’S GROWING ECONOMY AND IS FUELLED BY INCREASED AWARENESS OF SECURITY CHALLENGES AS THE COUNTRY TRANSITIONS TOWARDS DIGITAL MODELS OF SERVICE DELIVERY.
ICT spending in the UAE reached an estimated $16 billion in 2016 and topped $200 billion across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) more generally. The ascendancy of emerging tech trends like cloud, mobile, AI, big data, blockchain and IoT – all of which are key to the Smart Dubai initiative – are enhancing the need for reliable and agile processes that are secure by default. Security is fundamental for the adoption of the most advanced technologies as the UAE looks to diversify its economy, make businesses more efficient, and government more responsive.
Join hundreds of leading InfoSec, cyber security and risk management professionals at Whitehall Media’s prestigious 2nd ESRM Dubai conference to discuss the latest developments and best practices needed to address the most pressing security risks of tomorrow. Our line-up of expert speakers will discuss the cyber risk landscape, opportunities to detect and deter cyber-attacks through appropriate skills and capabilities, and the best practices to protect critical national systems and networks.
This must-attend event offers unrivalled networking opportunities and insights on how to design, implement and embed deliverable action plans that balance risk mitigation with the pursuit of business growth. Through a series of thought-leadership and case-study presentations, the conference will showcase the very best examples of how the public and private sectors are building resilience and utilising technology to solve strategic security issues.
