As the largest information and communication technology (ICT) market in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is a prime target for cyber attacks. In 2020 alone, the Kingdom recorded over 22.5 million of them, and the figure is expected to keep increasing. To help keep the cyber threats of both today and tomorrow at bay, Agora Group will host over 200 international cyberwarfare experts at the 5th edition of the Gulf Congress on Cybersecurity in Riyadh.

The one-day event will take place on September 20th, and its goal is to highlight the challenges facing governments, businesses, and individuals in securing the acquisition, protection, and dissemination of data and information in an era of connectivity and mobility.

Here’s a list of the topics that will be the focus of the 5th edition of the Gulf Congress on Cybersecurity in Riyadh:

  • Smart Kingdom.
  • Integrating cybersecurity policies into the strategic mission of public and private institutions.
  • The new normal of work – post pandemic and future trends in remote working. How can cybersecurity cope?
  • Cybersecurity and AI an unbreakable bond in a future of automation and orchestration.
  • OT cybersecurity – half of all cyber attacks in the Middle East target the oil & gas industry. Previously, these attacks were focused on the IT environment, however, we’ve been seeing an increase in attacks on operational technology.
  • Data management, governance and protection.

“Our aim is to create a stimulating and invigorating convocation that links some of the foremost thinkers in the cybersecurity world today to share ideas, raise challenging questions, and inspire thought to action,” state the organizers of the event in the official press release.

Agora Group is expecting more than 150 senior-level attendees at the event. Those who would like to attend and take part in the event should hurry up and register today because seats are limited.

LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region.

So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.

The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.
