Navigating the Evolving Threat Landscape of the interconnected world of IT, OT, IoT, IIoT, & Hybrid Cloud

In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, “Hyper-Resilient Cyber: Navigating the Evolving Threat Landscape in IT, OT & IoT” explores the pressing challenges and emerging threats that organizations face in securing their Information Technology (IT), Operational Technology (OT), and Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems.

MENA ISC 12th edition explores the convergence of IT, OT, and IoT systems, highlighting the increasing interconnectivity and interdependencies that expose critical infrastructure and data to a heightened level of risk. Drawing on real-world case studies and expert insights, the event will paint a vivid picture of the evolving threat landscape and the potential consequences of cyber-attacks.

“Hyper-Resilient Cyber” is an essential resource for cybersecurity professionals, CISOs, IT and OT professionals, policymakers, and anyone interested in safeguarding critical digital infrastructure in an era of ever-evolving cyber threats. MENA ISC 12th edition will give cybersecurity professionals the knowledge and tools needed to stay ahead of the curve and protect their organizations from the rising tide of cyber-attacks.
