World Cyber Security Summit to kick off in Amman on August 15


AMMAN — The 17th edition of the World Cyber ​​Security Summit will be held on August 15-16 at the Ritz-Carlton in Amman under the patronage of Prime Minister Bisher Al Khaswaneh and supported by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship of Jordan.

The World Cyber ​​Security Summit is part of a global series brought to Jordan by Trescon, a global business and consulting firm that specializes in hosting future technology events around the world, the company said in a statement.

The World Cyber ​​Security Summit aims to provide a platform to debate and discuss cyber security strategies.

The summit will host more than 300 C-level attendees, including government officials, chief information security officers, chief information officers, CEOs and technology leaders from businesses and government agencies in Jordan to meet, network and collaborate with global experts in cyber security and technology innovators over two days.

Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) Commissioner Belal Hafnawi said: “The importance of cyber security is increasing and is not an option for companies and organizations, and critical infrastructure and data require advanced defenses. Protecting sensitive data and information is a source of trust in organizations.”

Abdulrahman Al Nimari, Vice President – Cybersecurity of Saudi Arabia, said: “Remember: Compliance does not mean you are safe, you must have your own risk-driven cybersecurity program and strategy that mitigates your unique risks.”

Haidar Fraihat, Cluster Leader for Statistics, Information Society and Technology at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, said: “Corporations can easily be lulled into a false sense of security. Under the illusion that their precious data is safe, they may be inclined to let their guard down and invest less in improving the security of their data. Realizing that data and information are the strategic assets of organizations, perhaps more so than financial resources, is paramount to maintaining your competitive advantage, security, and even survival. Just because you feel safe doesn’t mean you’re really safe.”

Mohammed Saleem, founder of Trescon, said: “We are delighted to bring the global series of the World Cyber ​​Security Summit to Jordan, with the support of our strategic partner, the Jordan Cyber ​​Security Awareness Association (JOCSA). We hope this event will be a springboard for understanding how critical cyber security is today for organizations in the region.”
