The event

THE EVENT 

The COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the way we live and work, putting digitization on fast-forward. In turn, the prevalence, intensity and sophistication of cyberattacks have surged, exposing the many vulnerabilities in our digital infrastructure.

2021 marked a turning point for Cyber Security and reminded us that no corner of the world is immune. But more challenges lie ahead. COVID-19 variations uncertainty, rising electricity prices, and higher inflation will slow the global growth of the economy. In such times, crimes usually increase. Fraud and cyberattacks are expected to become more frequent and volatile in 2022.

Once a worry mainly for IT leaders, the risk of a cyber intrusion is now a top concern for CEOs and world leaders. Cyberattacks threaten businesses of all sizes and sectors, as well as governments across the globe. High-profile attacks have made it clear that security is crucial and forced the public and private sectors to collaborate closely to develop a comprehensive strategy and more effective defenses against threats.

THE EVENT

The forthcoming edition of the Cyber Security and Data Protection Forum organized by Capital will present the recent trends in the sector. It will give practical knowledge on how to identify, analyze, evaluate, prioritize and respond to potential risks.
The event will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of e Government.

THE AUDIENCE

The speakers and the participants will consist of leaders from the cyber
industry, governmental decision-makers, technology experts, investors,
entrepreneurs, and advisors who will exchange deep experience and best practices within the conference.
