Innovative Security
Summit 2019

Saudi Arabia

SUMMIT
OVERVIEW

Cyber Security is one of the hottest technology topics across verticals right now, especially for the government. It is expected that Saudi Arabia will continue to be a major target for cyber attacks. While end users continue to face threats, it will become imperative for the local supply side to adopt a consultative approach in positioning solutions and approaches for government to better protect its digital assets, networks, data, and devices, while boosting their internal capabilities to address the ever-evolving demand-side needs.

The government itself has become quite active in streamlining the security landscape in Saudi Arabia. Initiatives such as the establishment of National Cyber Security Commission is expected to completely change the security posture of the kingdom and is expected to create significant opportunities for investments in expanding the technology infrastructure from mobile devices to threat intelligence to behavioral analytics.

Innovations in technology such as the rise of IoT and M2M will significantly put additional stress on security investments as adopting such solutions will considerably expand the attack surface of organizations. This will also necessitate looking at digital transformation within government and other vital industries such as energy, utilities, and financial services to re-think their digital transformation strategies and start building initiatives with maintaining security at the core of these initiatives.

Then there is the story of 2018, the year that brought with it data breach after data breach, affecting millions of customers across industries, including customers of household names like Reddit, Facebook, Uber, British Airways and the Marriott hotel chain.

Whilst, the majority of attackers are still going for the low-hanging fruit, there are methods of attack that are becoming increasingly more sophisticated.
