Cybersecurity specialists from Saudi Aramco will be extending their knowledge and expertise during the conference by presenting the cybersecurity strategy, latest trends, and the evolution of cybersecurity capabilities in the industry, to aid in elevating the cyber resiliency of the Critical Infrastructure.
As a Diamond Patron, Saudi Aramco will have its own pavilion in the exhibition area of the conference, where evolved cybersecurity capabilities and cutting-edge solutions will be showcased.
“Saudi Aramco’s participation in this conference stems the company’s commitment to develop a sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem within the kingdom and continuous efforts to stay abreast of the latest developments in this field” said AbdulRahman Al-Muagle, Saudi Aramco’s Chief Information Security Officer.
Carrying this year’s theme “Alliance against Terrorism: Strategies and Capabilities”, the conference is organized by King Saud University in collaboration with the Ministry of Defense. Several events will be held on the sidelines of the conference, including the National Competition for Cybersecurity “Hackathon”, scientific sessions, panel discussions, and a number of training courses.
The conference aims to tackle the latest key trends and developments in the areas of command and control, computers, intelligence and cybersecurity, and their use in counterterrorism, as this helps identify the gap between the local requirements of customers and the current available solutions.
It will also be a strategic platform to share experiences and expertise among military, industrial and academic sectors. In addition, it provides the golden opportunity to discuss modern challenges, recommend solutions to counter those challenges, contribute to the development of command and control systems, as well as open new horizons for international collaboration in the areas of research, development and innovation.
