London, UK (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Market Publishers Ltd is announced as a media partner of the Kingdom Cyber Security Forum. The event will take place on May 12-13, 2014, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Attacks on crucial information infrastructure, governmental bodies and financial organisations in the Middle East region are gathering speed and becoming more and more sophisticated. State-funded or politically motivated offensive cyber units are well organised and are striving to inflict maximum damage. Saudi Aramco, a government-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies was hit with malware attack that wiped over 30,000 computer systems; and the situation soon became a threat to economy as well as for nations who rely on supply for electricity generation. The enemy is unknown and without a single footprint which makes it hard for organisations and national agencies to resolve the matter of key importance – Cyber Security.
The Kingdom Cyber Security Forum is targeted to creating a multi-stakeholder consortium that brings together industry, academic and governmental interests in an attempt to make improvements to the state of cyber security, on both the domestic and international scale.
