During the event, the Company will be sharing its years-long expertise in the field with partners and stakeholders, as part of its leading role in meeting the IT Security requirements of the public and private sector.
Commenting on the occasion, Eng. Ahmad Mohamed Al Kuwari, MEEZA CEO said:
“This year has witnessed several high-level cyber-attacks that targeted both the public and private sectors in the region, as well as around the world. In light of this, it is now more crucial than ever for institutions to raise their IT Security levels to the absolute maximum. When it comes to the financial sector, this is an absolute necessity since it is the most prone to security exploitation and compromise of information.”
He added: “With many years of experience in the field, it is our duty at MEEZA to effectively contribute to Qatar’s national effort to combat cybercrime, through the provision of up-to-the-minute IT Security Services and infrastructure that empower institutions to detect vulnerabilities and protect their information and resources, as well as via the exchange of information and expertise with industry stakeholders. By delivering best-in-class IT security levels, MEEZA is committed to help institutions protect their sensitive data and focus on business growth instead. More importantly, securing the public and private sectors’ digital infrastructure is the first step to enabling a fertile environment for business development, in the framework of realizing the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the establishment of a knowledge-based economy.”
The event is set to witness the active participation of all financial institutions and banks in the country and will be attended by a large number of world-renowned authority figures in the Financial Sector and high-profile industry experts who are going to address several key topics related to information security and discuss their potential risks, on the heels of recent cyber-attacks on a number of bodies and institutions in the region as well as around the world.
In addition to MEEZA’s presentation on advanced security threats in the financial sector, important issues to be discussed during the conference include the importance of business continuity in ICT, combating email fraud, database security, attacks & defense strategies on financial sector, cyber security policies for banking sectors, and the evolving nature of cyber-threats in payment systems.
