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; and
- 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.
