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 cyber security 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 cyber security efforts while also collaborating with counterparts around the world to ensure open and secure cyberspace. The country has few things to be considered on priority:
– Safeguarding the nation’s critical information infrastructure
– Responding to and recovering from cyber attacks
– Establishing a legal framework and regulations to create safe and secure cyberspace
– Fostering a cyber security culture that promotes safe and appropriate use of cyberspace
– Enhancing national cyber security capabilities

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, cyber security must be a shared responsibility of the government, companies, institutions, and individuals to succeed, and stakeholder cooperation is critical.

“As new and complex global cyber security 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.

Leading Autonomous Cyber AI Powerhouse Darktrace Joins World Cyber Security Summit -Africa

The first company to apply AI to the challenge of cyber security, Darktrace, will feature at Trescon’s virtual edition of the World Cyber Security Summit on May 24 2021. With a special focus on Africa, WCSS will aim to gather over 300 global online participants including Africa’s leading government authorities, top cyber security solution providers and senior-level decision-makers from enterprises to share insights on Africa’s budding cyber security market.

Among the top technology leaders and speakers who will join the global conversation will be Mariana Pereira, Director of Email Security Products at Darktrace. As a Director at Darktrace, she works closely with the development, analyst, and marketing teams to advise technical and non-technical audiences about bolstering their organizations’ cyber resilience with leading AI technology.

“We are delighted to join the World Cyber Security Summit as official cyber security partner, to discuss how organizations around the world can address their security challenges with cutting-edge innovation. Against the backdrop of a global shift in the way that companies operate, demand for Autonomous Cyber AI solutions has soared. We look forward to showing our the power of artificial intelligence in fighting sophisticated email threats at the summit. Our AI innovations protect the workforce and data of over 4,700 organizations globally from sophisticated attackers, by detecting, investigating and responding to cyber-threats in real time — wherever they strike,” stated Mariana Pereira.

In her session at World Cyber Security Summit she will be sharing her insights on the topic ‘Faking It: Stopping Impersonation Attacks with Cyber AI’ and will further aim to explore how today, 94 per cent of cyber-threats still originate in the inbox. Impersonation attacks are on the rise, as AI is increasingly being used to automatically generate spear-phishing emails, or “digital fakes”, that expertly mimic the writing style of trusted contacts and colleagues. Humans can no longer distinguish real from fake on their own – businesses are increasingly turning to AI to distinguish friend from foe and fight back with an autonomous response. In an era when thousands of documents can be encrypted in minutes, ‘immune system’ technology takes action in seconds – stopping cyber-threats before damage is done.

According to Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon, the summit will essentially explore how African enterprises and governments are leading an increased effort to strengthen the internet infrastructure and improve the solutions and aid provided by the software industry in a bid to protect its citizens from cyber attacks in the future. He said, “We are extremely honoured to feature Darktrace as the Official AI Cyber Security Partner for the event. Darktrace is vehemently modernizing its marketing technology and customer experience. We are enthusiastic to learn more about how their solutions can drive the future of African cyberspace at World Cyber Security Summit.” He further added, “The summit will feature regional and international use-case scenarios, keynotes, panel discussions, tech talks and more from leading technology stakeholders converging from key sectors like Government think-tanks, Healthcare, Banking and Finance; to name a few.”

The African Prospect

The Africa cyber security market size is anticipated to witness strong growth over the coming years on account of rapid growth in internet users combined with growing dependability on e-governance, IoT, commercial services and social networking.

This is also bolstered by an increasing number of cyber crime within the country that have, unfortunately, been seeing a surge in pushing governments to support sectors such as telecom, retail, finance and health to help amplify the demand for enterprise cyber security products, services and consumer software in the country.

Top African Cyber Security leaders are gathering virtually to address the region’s evolving cyber threats

World Cyber Security Summit will virtually connect the most influential voices in Africa’s cyber security space this May. Notable speakers include the likes of Daniel Adaramola – CISO, Unity Bank PLC; Themba Mnguni – Deputy Director, IT Audit, Department of Rural Development and Land Reform; Muyowa Mutemwa, Senior Cybersecurity Consultant, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR); Faheem Ali – Expert Financial Inclusion, FinTech and Digital Transformations – Chief Risk Officer, Musoni & more.

Thursday, 22 April 2021: Taking place on 24 May 2021, the virtual event will focus on topics such as envisioning cyber security as a tool for a safer Africa; Digital Hijacks: Ransomware Threats Are on the Rise, Real-time threat analysis, visualization and incident response; Cyber Security framework for OT, ICS & IoT environments and much more.

Why Africa?

African governments face a rapidly evolving variety of digital challenges, ranging from espionage to critical infrastructure disruption, organised crime, and combating innovation. And, so far, most African governments’ responses have lagged behind the rapid evolution of the cyber threats that their countries face.

Lack of understanding of cyber-related matters, lack of effective supervision and issues like oversight have increased the potential for cyber violence in Africa.

Given that African countries are among the most vulnerable to cyberattacks, it is in their best interests to participate more actively in international fora that are currently forming norms for state behaviour in cyberspace.

World Cyber Security Summit – Africa will feature keynotes from thought-leaders and industry experts, private networking sessions, private video meetings and more.

“At the World Cyber Security Summit, we have hand-picked thought leaders and experts from a variety of fields to address the foremost pressing cyber security challenges confronting African governments and businesses. The event will also include technology vendors specialising in cyberspace to assist organisations in identifying threat areas and appropriate strategies to address them,” says Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.

The summit will feature a ground-breaking collaboration of experts such as Humphrey Odhiambo – Head of Partnerships & Content, CIO East Africa; Hisham Mohamed Aly – Egypt CISO, Risk Division, Emirates NBD; Fene Oskawe, Director, Group IT – GRC & Strategy, IHS Towers; Confidence Staveley, Founder and Executive/Director, CyberSafe Foundation, Top 50 Women in Cyber Security Africa 2020; to name a few.

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.
