The Event


21st – 22nd January 2019Dubai, UAE

The CS4CA MENA Summit 2019 takes place as cyber-attacks are rocking the Oil and Gas, Energy, Utility, Chemical, Petrochemical, Water industries etc. The growing frequency and sophistication of these cyber-threats has prompted a huge increase in both funding and attention paid to cyber-security.

Exclusive keynote sessions from top industry execs present new ideas and different perspectives, whilst interactive panel debates offer delegates the chance to benchmark and discuss different approaches to today’s challenges. In-depth case studies showcase success stories with tangible and actionable insights into securing infrastructure and assets without affecting day-to-day operations.
