“Cyber security is an increasing relevant topic in a world that is relying more and more heavily on connectivity solutions to make life and business easier than ever before. Given the preference for companies to turn to managed and cloud-based solutions for the convenience and savings potential they present, we realised that it was especially important at this time to inform and education the UAE’s security business leaders on how to protect the infrastructure of electronic intrusions and protect information, while encouraging discussion that will lead to the development of the cyber security sector in the UAE,” said Marwan Abdulla Bin Dalmook, Senior Vice President – Technology Security & Risk Management, Operations, du.

He added, “Security must be integrated into the very fabric of an organisation, and it takes a security-conscious organisation such as we are to ensure that every level of cyber protection is met.”
