Delivering the best, securely

12th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai
10th March 2020

Securing citizens and stakeholders:

Governments and corporations must provide next-generation service with security built in


Technology is radically changing the expectations of consumers and citizens.

In Dubai, the government has stated explicitly that traditional processes need to be continuously updated to ensure efficiency and speed in Government to Consumer (G2C) and Government to Government (G2G) services. As they put it:
 

"Leveraging emerging technologies such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, along with harnessing Data Science capabilities, we are recreating everyday experiences for residents and visitors of Dubai, making them more personalized, seamless, efficient and impactful."
 

But this level of digitalisation needs to be cyber secure.

Governments and their agencies must build security into their new technologies.

Citizens must be kept safe from a wide range of hostile threat actors and unlike other regions across the globe, where monetizable data is the main target for cyber attackers, the Middle East is witnessing a surge in political and strategic hacking. Given the prevalence of state-directed attacks, it is states who are best-placed to defend their populations.

At the same time, the private sector must also redouble its efforts and invest in cloud security and data security as major cloud service providers set up in the region and business pivots to a Cloud-first strategy.

On top of this, the Data Protection Law (DPL) implemented in Bahrain in April 2019, and the likelihood that the UAE will also enact strict data privacy rules by the end of 2020, are forcing MENA organisations to rethink their data security framework.

As a result, MENA enterprise information security and risk management spending will total US$1.7 billion by 2020, an increase of 10.7% from 2019, according to a recent forecast by Gartner.

The 12th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress in Dubai will look at the latest in the processes and technologies used to protect data, identity and digital transformation. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from the security and privacy teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands, who know, just like you, that security is now more important to business than ever.

  • Dealing with nation state actors and exploits

    • Just a few years ago, most firms were told they weren't targets for nation states: how times have changed!
    • Hostile state entities as well as 'escaped' state-developed exploits are a threat to everyone.
    • How can companies protect honest employees against increasingly sophisticated threats?
  • Compliance with new regulations

    • Cybersecurity is going mandatory: voluntary commercial codes are not enough
    • Regulators want companies to demonstrate true cybersecurity as well as basic compliance
    • What does this mean for the CISO and what is the future of security regulation?
  • Adapting to the changing threatscape

    • Passive, static systems are increasingly vulnerable in a world of adaptive malware and attackers developing AI-based threats
    • Can global adaptive security architecture use predictive modelling and threat intelligence to combat this threat?
    • Is the ability to go on the offensive the future for cybersecurity solutions?
  • Slow train coming: the wait for intelligent cybersecurity

    • Automation is linear and rules-based, and automated cybersecurity solutions work that way: using signatures and/or historical data to identify issues
    • Current machine learning solutions are not much more advanced than this methodology, and statistical analysis still generates too many alerts for most human teams
    • Are we any closer to the availability of truly 'intelligent' solutions capable of living up to their promise?
  • One-stop shop security?

    • Many organisations simply cannot afford in-house SOCs or security teams big enough to counter cyber threats effectively.
    • And too many companies find themselves with a muddle of consumer-grade security solutions when what they need is a robust, enterprise-grade solution stack that is scalable and realistic to implement.
    • Is the answer for most firms to simply outsource to a 'one-stop shop'?
    • Does outsourcing really solve the underlying risk problem? What can be outsourced and what can't?
  • Securing digital transformation

    • What does digital transformation mean for data, for silos, and for cybersecurity?
    • Does securing the digital enterprise imply the transformation of cybersecurity?
    • Once boards wake up they want answers, metrics, and personnel they trust to deliver. Can they get them?
