About Cybersecurity Summit: Qatar

The 14th Edition Cyber Security Summit is an exclusive in-person event for cybersecurity leaders from leading enterprises in Qatar.

As Qatar prepares to become the first Middle Eastern country to host the FIFA World Cup, like most developed countries, it remains vulnerable to cyberattacks given its high level of technology adoption and smartphone penetration rate

Qatar has made significant investments in cybersecurity ahead of the FIFA 2022 World Cup and is projected to see the fastest growth in cyber security spending in the Middle East. As cyber threats across the world rapidly evolve, protecting Qatar’s critical ICT infrastructure and systems has become top priority. Cybersecurity leaders must overcome new risks inherent to their digital businesses.

At the Cybersecurity Summit Qatar, hear from top security thought leaders on strategy, action plans and best practices to build resilient and agile digital organizations. You will be privy to panel discussions, round-tables, industry keynotes and solution showcases that will enable security leaders to chart out an optimal path.

With over 150+ CISOs, CIOs, Heads of digital transformation, IT infrastructure, cyber security, information and communication technologies and other experts in attendance, the platform will equip you with the essential tools to risk-proof your businesses.
