From the Aramco Shamoon hacks to the most recent activities from international hacking group Anonymous, there has never been a more pressing case made for the Saudi government to focus on developing its digital security.
Which is why, the CITC and CERT-SA, are officially supporting the inaugural Digital Security Summit—an initiative which is in line with the bodies' agenda of becoming a reference point for information security in the Kingdom.
The opening keynote address is being delivered by HE Eng. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Darrab, the Governor of CITC, and will outline and highlight the Kingdom's plan on how to secure its digital future.
To be held on December 1st and 2nd in Riyadh, the summit is organised and hosted by French business information group Naseba.
The two days will comprise of a variety of strategic keynote addresses, workshops and panel discussions featuring Eng Abdulrahman A AlFriah, GM, CERT-SA, CITC; Robert Schischka, Managing Director, Austrian National CERT; and Dr Walter Fumy, Chair of IT Security Standards, International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Solution providers in attendance include Huawei, Northrop Grumman, Websense and Cyberia.
"Support from CITC and CERT-SA means the two days are a perfect platform for all the key players in the Kingdom to come together and discuss a fool proof cyber security plan. It also shows strong commitment from the Saudi government on making the issue of digital security a top priority," explained Nicholas Watson, Naseba's Managing Director.
