Whitehall Media to return to Dubai for second annual Enterprise Security and Risk Management Conference
Manchester UK, January 2018 – Following on from their successful launch in Dubai last year, Whitehall Media are set to return to the UAE for their second annual Enterprise Security and Risk Management conference. The conference will be held on 17 April 2018 at the Conrad Hotel.
The mass adoption of connected digital technologies by enterprises across the Middle East, along with major regional events like the Dubai Expo 2020, are catalysing huge investments in the cyber security domain. Whitehall Media’s one-day event will discuss how organisations can develop resilience in their people, processes and technologies to defend against risks and vulnerabilities, and deter cyber-attacks.
Chaired by the Editor of CNME, the event will bring together hundreds of InfoSec professionals to discuss key tenets of Dubai’s Cyber Security Strategy, the cyber risk landscape in 2018, how the digital ecosystem can be secured with next-generation security stratagems and technologies, the risks associated with emerging technologies, addressing the cyber security skills gap, and how organisations can transition from protection to prevention.
Ahead of the event, Waqas Hashemi who is CEO of Whitehall Media, said:
“Dubai is a roaring success story. In just a few years it has transformed itself into a major tech and innovation hub. The technology ecosystem is growing here and with the permeation of disruptive tech like Blockchain and AI, much of this growth holds a lot of promise. But while these technologies are opening up new pathways and opportunities, they also come with increased cyber risks and the need for more awareness and security measures.
“We are excited to be returning to Dubai for our second ESRM event. Whitehall Media have always been strong proponents of a holistic approach to risk and information security. Information systems are now intimately woven into an organisation’s processes and security programmes have to reflect this in how they approach the threat landscape. Our event will showcase the very best tools, techniques, and technologies to help enterprises improve their security posture. We’re looking forward to welcome hundreds of professionals from across the MENA region.”
