The online Cyber Security Salons Middle East 2021 event brought together key regional industry experts and Huawei speakers in a panel discussion to explore cybersecurity challenges faced by organisations and explore opportunities for future collaboration
Cyber Security Salons is a communication platform for stakeholders to meet and discuss cybersecurity policies and regulations, while providing the opportunity for regional and global regulators to explore how they can collaborate on cyber defense. The global series aims to bring in new perspectives from academics, policymakers alongside key opinion leaders and other stakeholders from APAC, European, and Middle Eastern regions.
This Middle Eastern version concludes the 2021 Security Salon series, after events in the Asia Pacific and European regions.
Dr. Jassim Haji, president of Artificial Intelligence Group, highlighted how Artificial Intelligence plays a vital role in cybersecurity, and that it won’t just be people that solve these issues. With the world in the Zettabyte era, criminals are already using AI, machine learning, and complex algorithms to carry out cyber-attacks. With AI becoming more autonomous, machines will play a greater role in tracking cyber threats in the Middle East and beyond. “AI is a necessity in the future” he said, with more tools emerging with no human supervision, even including drafting policy.
Huawei is a global entrusted ICT partner with leading cloud and cybersecurity expertise and continues to collaborate and contribute to the industry across the region.
