Security breaches have now become inevitable and the approach of corporates and governments have moved from prevention to resilience. While emerging technologies are becoming double-edged swords, the role of the Chief Information Security officer needs to be established clearly to ensure that we not only upgrade to newer technologies, but also account for safety of our data and systems. While the world is engulfed in the cloud of security vulnerabilities, EC Council brings to you its “MENA CISO Summit” which is the regional chapter for our very respected “Global CISO Forum” hosted in Atlanta every year. This program will cover the most pressing security concerns of companies and governments globally and is being hosted on 18-19 April 2018 in Dubai, UAE. The Middle East is soon gaining the reputation of a global market and as the natural choice for multinational companies to work with. A market like this serves as an excellent platform for a program like this which covers some of the most innovative and detailed solutions to your everyday security needs. Some of the discussions that you will witness are; including artificial intelligence in your security solutions, increased attacks against cloud services, building threat intelligence and understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is going to become a mandate for all the companies within Europe (including UK) and for the companies doing business with them.

Hear global experts will share their opinions on some of the burning issues in cyber security. Alongside the summit, we will also be hosting our CISO awards for the experts in the Middle East and North Africa region to complement their efforts in building a safer MENA region.

Attendee Feedback from previous EC-Council CISO Events
Excellent insight into an alternate definition on risk and how to answer the question "Are we secure?"
A great combination of solid theory and actionable guidance.
A discussion of maturity rarely reaches that level of depth and practical application
I got a great idea during the panel discussion for an IP awareness campaign.
That’s why I come to these things…smart people with great angles on who to improve security incrementally.
Differing views are best made available in conferences such as the EC-Council CISO Summit. Within these venues, lively discussions explore topics that are of interest to all security managers.
EC Council’s CISO Summit is an excellent opportunity to interface with not only some of the largest organizations, but also the smaller ones as well.
It was a truly wonderful event. It’s very healthy for information security executives and professionals to get together to share what’s working in their own organization for the betterment of other organizations as well.
Very well organized with a good mix of talent from diverse industries. The topics were excellent and targeted to the need of the industry today.
