Region EMEA

The MENA region is considered one of the world’s most targeted regions for cyber-attacks, largely due to its rising populations, pre-existing political tensions and major industrial projects which are driving the next levels of innovation and digitalisation that aim to transform the future of the region. Although the region strives to be front-runners in digital innovation, the level of security maturity must be improved if they are to achieve this goal.

As OT environments continue to converge with IT networks the need to secure these technologies to support continuous uptime and safety, has never been more critical. In particular, for business leaders in the Oil & Gas, Chemical, Healthcare, Mining, Utility, Maritime, and other critical industries.

With this in mind, CS4CA MENA summit will explore all aspects of IT & OT security with a focus on digitally transforming critical infrastructures. The summit will bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry, uniting 100+ IT & OT security leaders online for 2 days of insight building, strategy planning and expert knowledge exchange.
