8th Annual Chief Information Security Officer Middle East Summit & Roundtable – full agenda announced

It is clear from recent research that pressure is mounting on organisations to further develop their security strategies and employ updated techniques and solutions to effectively defend against both external and internal threat actors.

The vision of the leadership in the United Arab Emirates is to deliver government designed security in partnership with other institutions to pre-empt hostile actors by diagnosing and treating any disruptive attack on communications and critical infrastructure. Such advanced security design will change cyber security thinking around the world towards pre-emptive design and action.

As regional governments and companies continue investing heavily to protect, detect, and react to global cyber threats, MIS Training Institute plays a vital role in reducing cybercrime by providing a platform for regional, national, and international cooperation and addressing urgent cyber security challenges at the 8th Chief Information Security Officer Middle East Summit & Roundtable 2016.
