About the


The Security Symposium in KSA serves as a pivotal event aimed at addressing the escalating challenges posed by cyber threats in the Kingdom, which acts as a prominent information and communication hub in the Middle East. In recent years, the region has witnessed a notable increase in cyberattacks, attributing this surge to the growing prevalence of digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. With Saudi Arabia being the target of 7 million cyberattacks in the first two months of 2021 alone, the Security Symposium plays a crucial role in fostering a collective understanding of the cybersecurity landscape. The symposium is structured to provide a platform for experts, professionals, and stakeholders to engage in in-depth discussions, share insights, and collaboratively explore solutions to enhance the overall cybersecurity posture in the region.

Participants can expect a rich and insightful experience, getting into the latest developments, emerging threats, and strategic approaches to bolstering digital defenses.
