Prevent, protect, detect, monitor and respond to cyber threats affecting critical infrastructure

With the number of DDoS attacks resulting into an exponential rise in APTs, AVTs and SMTs apart from a wide complexity of these threats, especially in the GCC - organisations are focusing to build a comprehensive cyber security mechanism that will be using zero-day exploitation and SIEM scenarios to enhance preparedness. At the same time, ISO27001 implementation is being driven across the GCC, especially in the UAE where companies have been setting deadlines to achieve these standards by next year. An equally important aspect driving companies is to bridge the gap between OT and IT security to bring the level of robustness required in the ever-evolving cyber landscape and improve operational cyber resilience of organisations.

Discuss with the leading IT & cyber security heads in the region on how to evaluate cyber threats and find out cost-effective solutions for cyber security challenges while oil prices sit below US $40 per barrel at the 5th Edition of Cyber Security for Energy & Utilities Conference from 24–27 April 2016 at The Westin Golf Resort & Spa in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
