Arab Security Conference

Since the start of the digital transformation on a high gear, new processes and products were brought up to speed with a change of management as agile as possible to improve speed to market, filling the gap for the newly and aggressively introduced work environments-as WFH. While extending the security perimeter and responsibilities of information security personnel to fulfil bridging from private cloud to public cloud back and forth including providing digital services to different spectrum of users, high profile security lapses were ensued as expected. Gartner predicted that 60% of digital businesses would suffer major service failures by 2020 due to the inability of security teams to manage digital risk. This current year 2020, The Arab Security Conference-Digital Edition, is focusing on supporting business leaders towards thinking more thoroughly into effective information security attainment to ensure economy of scale and growth in the digital transformation era.
