uae warns of cyber attack threat over 2023 new year holidays

The rise of digital services in the Middle Eastern region, plus a growing number of internet and smartphone-equipped users, has dramatically increased the risk of cyber attacks, even threatening utility services such as water, gas, and electricity providers.

As we head into the New Year holiday weekend, the UAE Cybersecurity Council has given its citizens a stark warning of increased hacking and scamming activity from cybercriminals.

The council has emphasized the need for all institutions and authorities to ramp up their cyber defense systems, staying vigilant to threats and sharing information with the public to help them bolster their online safety, and working closely with authorities to pass on details of imminent threats.

Increased hacking activity isn’t just down to a growing reliance on digital services. The UAE Cybersecurity Council has also pointed out that hacking tools are now extremely simple for criminals to deploy. The council has stressed that both companies and individuals alike should adopt stronger protection mechanisms to safeguard themselves and their businesses.

ABB is a leader in electrification and automation solutions and has just announced the delivery of its millionth electric vehicle charger — the latest milestone in the company’s ongoing mission to create an emission-free future using smart and reliable EV charging solutions.

ABB currently boasts a presence in over 85 markets. After the launch of the company’s new $30 million, 16,000 squared meter production facility in Valdarno, Italy, production capacity has doubled over the last two years. The cutting-edge manufacturing plant recently set a new benchmark for the EV sector, producing a fast charger unit every 20 minutes, thanks to the high-tech factory’s seven simultaneous production lines.

“While our continual investment in research and development shows our ongoing commitment to enhance the field of e-mobility, the global delivery of these solutions at scale is integral to the realization of our goals. I want to thank our customers globally for their continued collaboration in hitting this one millionth charger milestone. I look forward to the millions yet to come, and to the cleaner, greener world they will help create,” says Frank Mühlon, ABB E-mobility CEO.

In the United Arab Emirates, ABB has installed over 80 fast and high-power DC charging stations, making it one of the largest projects from a single brand in the region. The biggest station is in Yas, Abu Dhabi, and offers 20 DC fast and high-power chargers for owners of emissions-free vehicles.

“We are proud that ABB chargers are today powering electric vehicles across strategic locations in the country, including the sites of the Dubai Utility provider, DEWA, and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. Most of the car manufacturers and dealers in the UAE have ABB chargers in their showrooms and as well as car parking areas. We are confident ABB’s technical know-how, products, and research in the field of E-Mobility will continue to support the decision-makers in the Middle East to drive the transition to an emission-free future,” says Ahmed Abdu, E-mobility division lead, MENA region.

In addition to its Italian facility, ABB E-mobility has continued its global expansion. Earlier this month, the company announced a new United States facility that will eventually turn out over 10,000 chargers per year for the public sector, providing power to school buses and other fleets. As well as expansion into the USA, ABB E-mobility’s stake in Chinese charging provider, Chargedot, opens up another lucrative market for the EV charging giant.
