MITIGATING CYBER THREATS IN QATAR'S DIGITIZED ECONOMY


CISOs and Cyber Security leaders are convening virtually to discuss latest strategies, tech trends and threats looming all around.

World Cyber Security Summit is a thought-leadership driven, business-focused initiative that provides a platform for CISOs who are looking to explore new-age threats and the technologies/strategies to mitigate them.

The show is virtually hosting CISOs across industry sectors from Qatar who will meet, network, learn and engage with some of the world’s renowned technology thought-leaders, subject matter experts and technology innovators in a constructive, open-dialogue environment to find solutions for issues hindering their information/cyber security.

WHY QATAR?

During Q1 2020, the GCC recorded 8,984 email spam attacks, the 4th-highest in Asia; 17 malware threats, the 3rd-highest in Asia; and 772 URL attacks, the 7th-highest in Asia.

Industry experts recommend a multilayered approach to protect all fronts and prevent users from accessing malicious domains that could deliver malware.

THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON QATAR'S CYBER SECURITY

Qatar recorded 2,033 email, URL and file threats related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Q1 2020, the second-highest in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)

Qatar recorded one of the highest figures in the GCC, including 1,923 email spam attacks, two malware threats and 108 URL attacks.

Of particular concern is ransomware, which has seen both high numbers and impact during the pandemic, as work from home initiatives risk loss of sensitive information.
