|QATAR, UAE, June 14, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Taking place on 7
July 2021, the 11th Global Edition of #TresconCyberSec will focus
on the Qatar region discussing topics such as, creating cyber
security frameworks for critical assets and critical
infrastructure; legal frameworks and regulations in cyber security;
the boom of emerging technologies: new threats & new security
techniques; cloud security, data protection and much more.
The Impact of Covid-19 on Qatar's Cyber Security:
Qatar recorded 2,033 emails, URL and file threats related to the
Corona virus (Covid-19) in Q1 2020, the second-highest in the Gulf
Cooperation Council (GCC); a very concerning fact for the nation
that has pushed officials into further investing in better security
systems to protect their businesses.
In particular, rise in recent ransomwares attacks has seen both
high numbers and impact during the pandemic, as work from home
initiatives risk loss of sensitive information.
Why Qatar and Why Now?
With the growing concern regarding security, government
organizations and enterprises in Qatar have been moving forward
with plans to better their security protocols in what seems to be
the country's bid to fight back against the cyber threat. But this
will take time and Qataris know what it takes - a long term
strategy and a strong foundational commitment from everyone
In fact, industry experts are recommending a more multi-layered
approach to protect all fronts and prevent users from accessing
malicious domains that could deliver malware.
"Privacy must be prioritised in this digital age. We are now seeing
that basically everyone recognises security as a business concern.
Cyber-criminals are always discovering new techniques to compromise
organisations, and if we don't keep ahead of the game, we might end
up with a massive problem." stated Mithun Shetty, CEO, Trescon.
He further added, "World Cyber Security Summit will address these
cyber security challenges faced by enterprises in Qatar as we have
hand-picked thought leaders and experts from a broad range of
industries. The event will also host technology providers
specialised in cyber security to help organisations identify threat
areas and suitable solutions to tackle them,"
