MENAISC 2019 begins today in Riyadh

Riyadh will host the 7th Middle East and North Africa Information Security Conference (MENAISC) 2019 between Sept. 9 and 10th under the theme “Cyber Space, The New Frontier: Deception, Orchestration and Blackholes.”
Samer Omar, CEO of VirtuPort, said that the increasing attacks on Saudi Arabia are due to its economy being one of the strongest economies in the Middle East and ranked among the top 20 global economies, making Saudi companies and institutions a direct and indirect target of cyberattacks to disrupt their operations and seize their data and resources. 
He highlighted the importance of continued focus on human capital in addition to investment in tools and technologies required by companies and government agencies to secure themselves from cyber-related threats.
Omar said the upcoming conference, which attracted more than 300 participants from all over the Kingdom in previous editions, will spotlight the integrative role of modern technological tools in order to maintain connectivity and networking among senior cybersecurity professionals in the Middle East and North Africa region.
“The MENAISC 2019 aims at increasing and sustaining the bridges built between cybersecurity professionals across the Middle East and North Africa and provide them with the best cybersecurity practices and up-to-date information,” he added.
