Experts to navigate Qatar’s national cyber security strategy at Trescon’s World Cyber Security Summit

The 11th Global Edition of Trescon’s World Cyber Security Summit will virtually gather over 200 online participants and discuss the future adoption of cybersecurity solutions, that will help boost Qatar’s tech infrastructure into the new normal.

The internet has connected us to individuals all over the world in ways that were impossible a decade ago; eliminating communication barriers and encouraging collaboration in many aspects of our personal and professional lives. Cyberspace has evolved into a vibrant and vital component of our society, fuelling economic growth and creativity while improving our lives in numerous ways — and it will continue to expand and provide us with even more opportunities in the future.

Qatar is stepping up its cybersecurity efforts while also collaborating with counterparts around the world to ensure open and secure cyberspace. In 2013, the Qatari Prime Minister established the National Cyber Security Committee to address the cyber agenda at the national level and to ensure that all public and private entities are adopting the appropriate cyber agenda.

While the government lead the efforts to protect government systems and networks, cybersecurity must be a shared responsibility of the government, companies, institutions, and individuals to succeed, and stakeholder cooperation is critical.

“As new and complex global cybersecurity challenges emerge, Qatar is well-positioned to be proactive in strengthening the country’s cyber preparation and resilience, as well as protecting cyberspace for future generations. They will continue to harness the potential of information and communications technology to guarantee a successful future for all of their people, as envisioned in the Qatar National Vision 2030,” stated Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.

Taking place on 7 July 2021, the 11th Global Edition of #TresconCyberSec will virtually gather thought leaders in cyber space, top CISO’s from the Qatar region and will discuss topics such as Cyber Security and Data Protection for Banking and Financial Institutions; Cloud security & Data protection; Boom of Emerging technologies: new threats & new security techniques; Cyber Security & Digital Transformation and much more.

The summit will be hosted on the virtual events platform Vmeets to help participants network and conduct business in an interactive and immersive virtual environment. Participants can also engage with speakers in Q&A sessions and network with solution providers in virtual exhibition booths, private consultation rooms and private networking rooms.
