About the


The GCC Security Symposium is back with its 7th Edition – this year Bigger!

The Symposium is touring 3 countries in GCC – UAE, KSA, and Qatar and will be gathering over 400+ leading security decision-makers in 2023. We all have a role to play when it comes to cyber security – attackers are increasingly circumventing technical controls and targeting account holders who inadvertently ‘open the door’ to attackers.

Apart from the overarching theme of ‘Sec_rity is not complete without ‘U’, the
symposium will also have a closer look into how leaders in BCM and Risk management are helping companies to build a strong business case for business continuity and crisis\risk management. The event will also bring together top leading professionals that are involved in crisis management, disaster recovery, cybersecurity, and business resilience.

The symposium is an ideal platform to gain exceptional knowledge on how an agile BCM plan will bring increased flexibility and agility to your organization. The event will feature a super array of powerful keynotes, presentations, workshops, and panel discussions along with an exhibition featuring top providers in the business continuity and resilience industry.
